Remember on Sunday, when I told you about the big box o’organic strawberries from CostCo? Well, turns out, if you don’t eat them quickly, they kind of turn to mush. So, we are racing against time, and tonight’s recipe is just one way I am using them:
Strawberry Margarita Rocks
- 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh is best)
Using your immersion blender (see, I actually talk about gadgets!) or a regular blender, blend the strawberries and lemon juice together. Strain through a fine mesh sieve.
- 1/2 cup of the above strawberry puree
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1/4 cup tequila
Mix together and pour over ice. If you want to channel your inner bartender, pour the mixture over ice in a shaker, and then pour into martini-style glasses. Serve.
Makes 2 margaritas, unless you worked all day today, and then it makes one big one!
