I love strawberries.  I love margaritas.  I hate strawberry margaritas.  The problem is you dine at a restaurant, order a strawberry margarita and it’s a sugary, frozen, 800 calorie hot mess.  So when life hands you lemons (or rather strawberries) you make lemonade…spiked of course.  So my Loves, I give you my take on the Strawberry Margarita.  A Margarita to shame all other Margaritas!  Cin Cin! Truly, MKR

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 oz of silver tequila (I prefer Herradura or Patron...you could also use vodka if you're not a tequila fan)
  2. 1 pint of fresh strawberries
  3. Juice of 2 limes
  4. 1-2 splashes of simple syrup (dependent on how in season and sweet your strawberries are)
  5. Ice
  6. Muddler
  7. Cocktail shaker
  8. Sieve
Instructions
  1. Rinse, hull and cut strawberries in half.
  2. Add ice to martini glasses and set aside to chill.
  3. Place sieve on top of a bowl or large measuring cup. Add about a handful of strawberries to the sieve and begin to muddle. You CANNOT do this in a blender because the strawberries will become foamy. Continue muddling strawberries and extracting the juice until you have about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of strawberry juice.
  4. Add ice, strawberry juice, lime juice, and simple syrup to the cocktail shaker. Shake, shake, shake.
  5. Dump ice out of martini glasses, pour the strawberry margarita micture in, garnish with a strawberry and enjoy!
Notes
  1. *You can also sugar or salt the rim if preferred.
