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!

Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita

Yield: 2 margaritas

Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita


  • 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


  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.


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. The farmers market is my happy place, filling my basket with fresh produce. I take my entire family because I think it’s important for the kids to shop with us, but there are days where their insistence on looking for certain items out of order drives me nuts, too. I love that you have farmers market cocktails when your husband does make it out, and margaritas at that.

    1. I hear ya!! I will totally bring my kids one day too – it’s great for them to learn about food that way!

  2. SO many things to love about this post. Props to your husband for the farmer’s market cocktail routine – one of my favorite activities!! Cocktailing is definitely a word and should be used liberally at all times. Thanks for the great recipe Gaby!

  3. They look great! I am planning my wedding now and hmm… these look like a very good idea for a Miami wedding in February! We get strawberries really early in Florida.

  4. If it weren’t for the fact that my veins don’t have tastebuds (an image that I am sufficiently creeped out just picturing, by the way…), I’m pretty sure an IV drip would be the way to go with this bad boy. Thanks so much for joining our little potluck, Gaby! Humbled and supes haps (sorry…) to have you around. :)

  5. If it weren’t for the fact that my veins don’t have taste buds (an image which I am now sufficiently creeped out just thinking about…), I would totally say an IV drip is the way to go with his bad boy. I mean, yeah — just all the things, plug ’em right in. Humbled and supes haps (sorry) to have you hanging out with us for #SoLetsPigOut, Gaby! I await the day when real life hang time can happen. Until then — cheers! <3 xo – Em
