Fresh Strawberry Margaritas


Makes 4 generous servings.



1 pound (16 ounces) Lepp’s fresh strawberries, hulled

1 cup of your favourite tequila

2/3 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice

1/31/2 cup honey or agave, more/less to taste

1/4 cup Cointreau or Triple Sec (or any orange liqueur)

For serving: ice, salt or sugar to rim the glasses, extra fresh strawberries and/or lime slices for garnish


Add strawberries, tequila, lime juice, honey, and orange liqueur to a blender. Puree until completely smooth. Let the mixture rest for about 3 minutes, then skim off the foam on top if you prefer. I leave it, as it looks and tastes even more homemade to me.  

Taste, and add extra tequila or sweetener if desired. (I won’t comment on whether I add more tequila or not!)  

If you would like to serve these in salt or sugar-rimmed glasses, simply run a lime wedge around the top of each glass. Then dip the top of the glass upside-down in a bowl of coarse margarita salt or coarse sugar. Garnish the glasses with fresh strawberries and/or lime slices if desired.

If there’s any leftover, freeze it for the next time you need a fresh margarita.  Let it thaw slightly before pulsing it in the blender again.
