There was a summer, a few years back, that we probably made margaritas 3 times a week. Sometimes with the ol’ tequila, sometimes without. Either way, it was refreshing and delicious (obviously) Sometimes we would get extra crazy and toss a Corona upside down into the margarita. Go big or go home right!!?!!
One of the *many* things I love about margaritas is that they are so versatile. I mean lets be real, any fruit added with tequila is pretty gosh darn good. And even if alcohol isn’t your thing, a “mockarita” is just as DELICIOUS! I love any margarita with strawberries and since CaStrawberries are still very much in season (and are actually available year round), I grabbed a bunch of fresh strawberries to make myself a little afternoon drinky drink. I never add simple syrups to my fruit drinks because the fruit is sweet enough as is and I feel like it takes away from the actualy taste of the real fruit!
- 1 pint of strawberries
- 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
- 1/2 cup 100% orange juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1-2 cups ice
- 2 oz tequila silver
- Throw everything into a blender and blend!
- Garnish with a strawberry and piece of pineapple
Omit tequila for a mockarita!
After reading the recipe you can see why I made them a billion times a few summers ago!! Easy peasy. And for those of you wondering, I like tequila silver better than gold because they usually add caramel coloring to the gold kind and that’s just not my thang. I feel like silver doesn’t have as strong as a taste either. And obviously, for a whole30 version just omit the tequila, although as you may already know fruity drinks aren’t recommended (they are allowed, just not recommended #sugardragon)
Tell me whats your favorite summer drink to have? Are they margaritas like me??!!
