Happy Cinco de Mayo! The proximity of this, the best food holiday, with Mothers Day this year is a bit unfortunate because I don’t have time to do them both justice and if you know me but at all, you know which I will favor. In fact, my ideal Mothers Day would really just be one long extension of Cinco de Mayo anyway. I figured a beverage recipe would be perfect for a last minute addition to whatever menu you might already have planned, and these fresh strawberry margaritas are ideal with spring berries in season.
These are pretty simple and straightforward to make and if you have a decently stocked bar and the expected spring stockpile of berries, you likely have what you need on hand. As you might expect of a strawberry cocktail, this is on the sweeter side of things. As written it is a bit sweet for my taste. Consider dialing back the sugar in the recipe or upping the ratio of alcohol to strawberry puree. Play around to find your perfect balance. Even the mistakes will be delicious.
