Frozen Strawberry Margaritas



          I wrote this recipe early in the week hoping to get it to you by Cinco de Mayo, my -
                         personal favorite holiday and I'm so happy to be able to post this.

     I'm not sure if any of you have seen on the news that California is having some serious
     wild fires and I was evacuated yesterday and was able to get back home today, only to
     hear that I might have to be evacuated again. Luckily, that did not happen. Needless
     to say...I'm celebrating Cinco de Mayo today and counting my blessings!


                                                           Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

                                                           6 ounces of tequila ( Cabo or patron )
                                                           2 ounces grand marnier
                                                           1 quart of fresh strawberries
                                                           3 limes, juiced
                                                           3/4 cup water
                                                           2 tablespoons agave nectar
                                                           3 to 4 cups of ice

        1) In a blender. Mix all 7 ingredients until desired consistency. Pour into salt rimmed
        glasses!

         These margaritas are so tasty and make an entire pitcher full. Share and enjoy!!!

  4. I made your coconut lime margaritas a few months ago and loved them! I can't wait to try these! We are celebrating Apple Blossom (a huge local festival that boasts one of the world's largest firefighter's parade!) and Cinco de Mayo this weekend! Lots of celebratory drinks will be had this weekend! Thanks for sharing!

  33. So sorry to hear you were affected by the fires! I was watching the coverage on the news. We've had the weirdest weather here in CA this past week.

    Somehow I knew you could make the perfect margarita . Love that you use agave nectar. We should save the calories for the tequila :)
