Recipe ingredients

Strawberry margarita ingredients.

Ingredient notes

  • Margarita salt: Homemade margarita salt is fun to make when you’re feeling extra. Or, use kosher salt or even sugar.
  • Strawberries: We recommend fresh strawberries for this cocktail. Frozen strawberries lacked flavor and tasted “watery.”
  • Tequila: For a similar, stronger flavor, substitute Mezcal.
  • Honey: Or substitute simple syrup, agave nectar, or sugar to taste.
  • Triple sec: Or substitute your favorite orange liqueur such as Grand Mariner, Cointreau, or Curacao.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. In a shallow dish as wide as your serving glass, add Margarita salt (or kosher salt) to 1/4-inch deep. Run a lime wedge around the top of each glass, then dip the top of the glass upside-down into the salt and turn to coat.

Recipe tips and variations

  • Frozen margarita: Add ice to your blender to taste and blend until slushy (I like about 5 cups of ice).
  • Daiquiri: To make a strawberry daiquiri, substitute rum for the tequila.

  1. Hi! Was wondering if the strawberries blended up would clog up a drink dispenser. Thanks in advance to anyone who may know!

    1. Hi Kelli, as long as it’s blended well to where there are no chunks you should be okay. However, if you are really concerned about it you can strain before pouring into the dispenser. Hope this helps! – Meggan

  2. I have long suspected that in other areas of the country they have huge limes. In the Midwest our limes are small, about the size of a small egg. So, to get 1 cup of lime juice I needed about 15 limes. I was shooting for doubling the recipe but I would have needed 30, apparently! However, the recipe is great.
    Thanks for posting this – signed the small lime lady5 stars

    1. Hi J, I completely understand! Sometimes we get amazingly large limes, other times is small ones. – Meggan

  3. Hi Meggan;
    Thanks for posting the recipe for strawberry margaritas. Can you please let me know how many strawberries and how much tequila, lime juice and simple syrup to add for strawberry margaritas for two?
    Thanks,
    William Scarratt

    1. Hi William, to have the recipe card show you the amounts for two servings, you can use the slide bar under servings and change it from 4 to 2. Here’s the amounts, hope this helps! – Meggan
      Margarita salt or kosher salt
      Lime wedges
      0.5 pound fresh strawberries hulled
      0.5 cup tequila
      0.33 cup fresh lime juice (1/3 cup)
      0.17 cup honey (about 2 tablespoons, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons)
      0.13 cup triple sec (about 2 tablespoons)

  4. Just googled a recipe and clicked on the link to here. Whipped up a batch in no time and this is literally one of the best strawberry margs I’ve ever had. I did sub strwaberry puree because that is what I had on hand when the craving struck me. This will be my go to recipe!5 stars

  5. Delicious! Used patron and cointreau. Substituted with a little white sugar since I didn’t have honey on hand. My husband LOVED it!5 stars
