Whether you decide to salt your rim with sugar or salt, you truly can’t go wrong with this Strawberry Limeade Margarita recipe from Aimee Broussard, especially in the mounting heat as summer grows closer.
It’s even possible to make adjustments for the kids’ table: just skip the tequila and triple sec. Either way, you’ll have a drink sure to spice up–or cool down–the party.
1 (12-oz.) can frozen limeade concentrate 1 ½ cups cold water 1 lb. strawberries, washed, stems removed 6 oz. lime tequila 2 oz. triple sec Margarita salt or sugar, for rimming Limes and strawberries, for garnish
In a large pitcher, combine frozen limeade concentrate and water. Place strawberries in a food processor and pulse until puréed.
