Because this doesnt have a lot of ice cubes in it, it's not a truly "frozen" margarita. So I added a cube to my drink so it would stay cold.

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
  • about 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 2 shots tequila
  • 1 shot orange liqueur (Triple Sec)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey (may need more, depending on the sweetness/tartness of your strawberries)
  • juice of two limes

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Garnish with a strawberry and a basil leaf.

Makes two to three servings.

Finally a use for my Fiestaware. (Finishing a glass while I write this - sorry in advance for errors.)

  • 1/2 cup tequila (NOT ENOUGH, ADD MORE)
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur – aka Triple Sec
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar)
  • 6 thin slices cucumber
  • 6 thin slices jalapeno
  • Salt for glass rims (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour so the flavors can combine.

Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses. Makes about two glasses.
