First, if you have any kind of pre-made cocktail mixers in your house, throw them away now. Next, follow these simple instructions. Remember kids, there's nothing to be ashamed of when you're using quality ingredients. Frozen dranks are baaaaack!
-Frozen Strawberry Margarita-
(recipe serves 2 people, theoretically)3 oz blanco tequila (I like Cimarron or Espolon)
1.25 - 1.5 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz strawberry rosé syrup (or sub in agave syrup**)
1 oz orange liqueur (I like Bauchant or Amara Amaro)
10-12 fresh or frozen strawberries
(If you know that your strawberries are tart, back down on the citrus rather than bumping up the syrup.)
1. Select your preferred receptacles for consuming the beverages, and fill both glasses with ice. This is how I get the best ice to slushy ratio.
2. Put all ingredients in a blender and add the ice from the glasses. Blend on high until you've got all slush and no big ice pieces.
3. Pour immediately into glasses so it doesn't have time to separate. Drink immediately so it doesn't have time to melt.
**If you don't feel like making the strawberry syrup, a simple agave nectar syrup will do in a pinch. I typically dilute 2:1 (agave to hot water) to loosen it up. If you don't want to dilute for whatever reason, use half the amount in the above recipe.
