Strawberry Jalapeño Margaritas

Summertime in my book means Strawberry Jalapeño Margaritas.

Strawberry Jalapeño Margaritas

It’s pretty much a rule when the weather hits 75+ degrees. I’m bringing back one of my favorite recipes because it deserves to be front and center this weekend! We served a version of these at our wedding (I can’t believe that was almost 2 years ago) and they were a huge hit!! They are equal parts sweet with the berries and spicy from the peppers. It’s a match made in summertime heaven!

Yield: 2 margaritas

Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita

Ingredients

  • 12 strawberries, green tops removed
  • 1 thinly sliced ring of jalapeno pepper (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 4 ounces silver/blanco tequila

Instructions

  1. Combine the strawberries and jalapeño pepper in a small blender and blend until smooth. Pour the contents of the blender in a shaker.
  2. Add the lime juice, agave nectar and tequila and a handful of ice. Secure the lid on the shaker and shake for 30-60 seconds to mix and chill the margarita.
  3. Strain the juice out and serve over ice.

Notes

Instead of lining these margaritas with a salt rim, try combining equal parts salt and sugar for a sweet and salty rim! It's the best!

  1. Looks amazing! If you were making this for a party, would you go ahead and mix everything to put in a drink dispenser then use the ice/shaker for the individual margies? Just one jalapeno slice per 2 drinks? Super excited to try this out…thank you!

  2. Gabby,

    I tried this and it came out very thick almost like a v8 juice have you ever added water or have I done something else

    1. it’s supposed to be a bit thicker! but you could add a dash of sparkling water if you want to thin it out a bit!
