Homemade Strawberry Margaritas

Just in time for the weekend, the weather is finally starting to warm up and  resemble what we call Summertime here in California. I am starting to think that like most people I know, the weather here has become bi-polar and will act however it feels at any given moment.

Today being May 20th means that it is National Pick Strawberries Day, so we figured we would hit you with a recipe we know will make any afternoon get together or weekend function come to life like a shot of adrenaline straight to the chest.

Margaritas at a house party these days are as common as finding someone passed out in a corner or someone spilling something on your carpet and hiding it from you, either way you view it, it simply means people were getting tore up and having a good time.

The 6 ingredients this recipe calls for are commonly found around the house, ok well at least at our house and unless you live in Utah can be found at any store at any given time of day.

Enjoy these drinks with some chicken fajitas and Spanish rice, that’s how it should be done.

2 cups crushed ice
1/2 cup strawberry puree (frozen can or fresh strawberries, pureed)
1 cup tequila (Preferably Patron Silver)
2 limes, juiced
Splash Triple Sec
Splash simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves, then cooled)

Combine in a blender, ice, strawberry water, tequila, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup. 
Puree until smooth. 
Pour into rocks glasses and serve.
