Author Notes

I love fruit margaritas, but often the frozen kind are made with fruit-flavored syrups instead of real fruit. This recipe uses real strawberries and absolutely zero sweet and sour mix. —Marshmallows&Margaritas

Test Kitchen Notes

This was very good. It's very straight forward and there is a ton of strawberry to keep it from being too much for a spring afternoon. I quite enjoyed it. —Sarahgreenbean
