I’m sharing these with you on a Monday so that you have all week long to be sure you obtain the necessary ingredients before Friday…or in the event that you have a major case of the Mondays today, well, these might help turn your day around.  Classic margaritas are pretty wonderful on their own, but one of my goals this spring and summer is to test several different variations.  Quite a worthwhile goal, don’t you think?    Strawberry was the first flavor I wanted to conquer.  I tried a version of strawberry margaritas last summer that was a big flop.  After I had looked so forward to them, that was quite a disappointment so the success of this recipe is doubly gratifying.  As with a lot of fruity frozen cocktails, these really aren’t incredibly potent but I’m okay with that.  I think the flavor balance is just right as is, and adding much more alcohol would really detract from the taste.  But of course, you should make them the way you like them.  It’s your drink, after all!


1 cup frozen whole strawberries
6 tbsp. tequila
¼ cup frozen limeade concentrate
2 tbsp. triple sec
2 cups crushed ice

    Place margarita glasses in the freezer to chill.  Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Pour into the chilled glasses and serve.

  • I still have yet to try a margarita! Looks amazing.

  • This looks frosty and satisfying!

  • What a great looking drink and gorgeous photos!

  • Yum! I have a delicious pomegranate margarita on my blog, not frozen, but still amazing! I drink way too many when I make them :)

  • Yum, I love a good margarita!

    Hello Annie, I dont have in my country frozen limeade concentrate, can i just make a normal lemonade… what do you suggest? Thanks.

  • Perfectly frosty! I am slowly converting to a frozen drink fan. The conversion has been fun :)

  • This could definitely turn my Monday around! I guess I should wait until noon to make one, right? :)

  • I am so down with having this right now. Yum :)

  • I have Margarita Mondays way too often – and strawberry is by far my favorite flavor – this is the same way I make them, except instead of using triple sec I use a little sprite. Not conventional, I know, but I love the way they turn out. I also love the convenience of limeaid. I think experimenting with different flavors is an excellent summer project, and I may adopt it as well!

  • Annie

    Yay! I hope that means we’ll be seeing a pineapple version from you soon :)

  • Annie

    I’m really not sure, good luck finding something!

  • I have a great Mango Basil margarita recipe! These look delish!

  • Strawberry with lime sounds great and perfect for the warmer weather :)

  • Vesta

    I made some fantastic grapefruit margaritas for Cinco de Mayo. If you haven’t thought of it already add them to your list of flavors to try. You won’t be disappointed!

  • Annie, the first picture is absolutely gorgeous! And yeah, I could go for one of these – drink an extra one for me next time you make them!

  • Oh my goodness, YES! It might be barely noon, but I want one of these margaritas NOW. You must have so been looking forward to enjoying these after 9 months of not being able to, Annie! They look so refreshing and perfect for summer. Thanks for sharing.

  • Ruthi

    I made these from Martha’s website on Seis de Mayo. They were a HUGE hit!

  • Yum… that looks absolutely delicious. I might have to head to the store to buy ingredients right now!

  • Oh I need to make these. I love me some margaritas

  • Jessie

    I’m pretty much a traditional margie kind of girl but these look too good to pass up. You’ll have to try beer margaritas in your quest sometime…12 oz each of beer, water, tequila, frozen limeade concentrate.

  • Jessie

    Oooh…please post the recipe. Sounds yummy.

  • Annie

    I would, except I don’t like beer :( I know people love those though!

  • My mom used Limeaide for years and it also turned out the best margaritas. Nice post:

  • Julienne

    Those strawberry margaritas look yummy! I made them to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and they were heavenly reminding me of coming summer days. I didn’t add limeade in mine but they tasted great too. And I made sure to rim my margarita glasses with lime juice then dip in coarse salt…divine! Thanks for the tip about putting the glasses in the freezer first I never thought of doing that. I’ll have to try peach when they come in season.

    For Cinco de Mayo, I took some awesome margarita mix from Costco (Kirkland brand without any HFCS) and dumped it into the ice cream maker. When it had reached the sorbet consistency, I pulled it all out and mixed it with some tequila in a pitcher. They were wonderful! Being from Phoenix we know our margaritas ;)My only regret was not having the second ice cream bowl frozen so we could make a second batch. The ice cream machine makes excellent frozen drinks, as long as you add the alcohol afterwards.

  • Linda

    So, my husband’s first response to this recipe was “who measures tequila in tablespoons?” But after I made them – and we had a few – I heard him tell his friend (on the phone) that they were “kick ass”. :)

  • That look yummy! We can’t wait to try it!

  • Jessica

    So.. could you just replace the fruit to change the flavor? Like 1 cup frozen pineapple pieces or whatever?

  • annieseats

    I wouldn’t recommend it since fruits vary so widely in sweetness, texture, etc. I have lots of different flavors of margaritas posted and plan to post even more. Hope that helps!

  • Elizabeth

    I made at least 4 batches of these today for our cinco de Mayo party. Yum! Thanks for the recipe.

  • Diana

    These were excellent! Great, easy recipe!
