Instructions

for the simple syrup:

  • Combine water and sugar in small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Once sugar dissolves, remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Once cooled, combine simple syrup with strawberries in blender and blend until combined.
  • If desired, strain mixture over fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. We didn't.

to make the margaritas:

  • Take wedge of lime and rim the edge of glass, then dip in salt or sugar.
  • In cocktail shaker, combine Triple sec, tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup with ice.
  • Shake for a good 30-45 seconds.

Notes

This recipe is for 2 margaritas, however the strawberry simple syrup will make much more than needed for 2 margaritas. So if you make more than 2 margaritas, place remaining simple syrup in air-tight container and store in the refrigerator.
