Strawberry Jalapeño Margaritas


Total Time:



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!

Gaby Dalkin
Servings 2 margaritas


  • 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


  • Combine the strawberries and jalapeño pepper in a small blender and blend until smooth. Pour the contents of the blender in a shaker.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    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!

    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

      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!

    Awesome stuff!!! We really enjoyed these. One thing i did that made them that much better was add a little twang hot lime beer salt to the rim mix. Came out great!!!
