Fresh Strawberry Margaritas

May 5, 2021 | Cocktails, Food Styling, Recipes

Scratch the frozen margarita mix!

The most wonderful margarita for Cinqo de Mayo is a beautiful, fresh Strawberry Margarita!

So much more natural and delicious than the frozen mixes. Temper the tartness with 1 tablespoon of honey.

This batch tastes so great with my Shrimp Tacos. Accented with gorgeous sprigs of cilantro 🌿 from Petal Pushers Garden Center in Channahon, Illinois!

Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C and are rich in antioxidants. They are 91 percent water.

Happy Cinqo de Mayo!
