Summer is right around the corner…and you know what that means: margaritas by the pool! Although I love margaritas, I’m not a big fan of pre-made mixes since they tend to be high in sugar or high fructose corn syrup and add a ton of calories to your drink. Because of this, I decided to take things into my own hands and blended together a fresh strawberry margarita for me and the hubs. I didn’t look up a recipe anywhere, so went completely off my instincts. Check it out and let me know if you like it as much as we did!


Ingredients (for two margaritas)

6 to 7 fresh strawberries, washed and leaves removed
1 cup crushed ice cubes
2 shots of your favorite tequila
1 shot of Cointreau, triple sec, or other orange liqueur
1 shot of sweetened lime juice
1 tablespoon of confectioners sugar
a squeeze of fresh lime juice



Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into two margarita glasses and enjoy with your favorite Mexican food, or, all by itself!
