Summer entertaining is in full swing, and that means backyard parties, cookouts, and warm weather. What better way to beat the heat than with a cold, fruity beverage? This isn’t your typical strawberry margarita, and that’s a good thing!
Instead of being made from frozen concentrate, it’s prepared using fresh strawberries and limes and served on the rocks. The Jalapeño gives this cocktail so much extra flavor that makes this drink really stand out. Can’t or don’t want to use alcohol? No problem! The strawberry syrup would taste wonderful mixed into sparkling water or club soda. Either way, these margaritas are sure to disappear quickly!
These are sweet from the strawberries, a little spicy from the jalapeño and the perfect refreshing cocktail after a long week!! The recipe below serves 2, but you can easily batch these up and make them ahead of time if serving a crowd. Just make sure to give the mixture a stir before pouring so you ensure the alcohol is evenly combined!
Let’s talk about the “health benefits” of this sweet summer cocktail.
(1) Strawberries = antioxidants + vitamin C (2) Jalapeno= A single jalapeno pepper contains vitamin C and antioxidants (3) Organic Blue Agave = Better the sugar!
