To celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the perfect weather in DC this weekend I decided to whip up a fun frozen cocktail to enjoy. I'm not a huge fan of super syrupy frozen drinks, so I made my own frozen margarita of sorts. Really, it's more of a daiquiri, but I used tequila (you have to celebrate 5/5 right?). This was pretty easy to whip up, and I just threw everything in the old magic bullet. Hope y'all enjoy
- 1 cup frozen strawberries (I threw in some very ripe fresh ones too)
- 3 oz Tequila
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1 1/5 TBSP simple syrup
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend. Add ice or additional syrup until you reach your desired consistency/sweetness. Enjoy.
Now I will tell you this is tangy and delicious, and it creates a pretty big margarita so you could easily share it with a friend. I garnished with a slice of kiwi because it was pretty. Hope y'all enjoy!
