{4th of July} Fresh Strawberry Margaritas

When it comes to celebrating the 4th of July, a frosty adult beverage is a must. Nothing says land of the free and home of the brave like this fresh strawberry “ame-rita.” My family and I recently went strawberry picking at Polzin Farm in Cedarburg. We got a bit over zealous and found ourselves with over nine pounds of strawberries when it was all said and done. These strawberries don’t even resemble what you buy in the grocery store. They are bright red and bursting with juices.

Make this strawberry margarita for your BBQ or parade watching this weekend. With a little festive garnish, you re-create this Mexican treat into an old American favorite.

Fresh Strawberry Margarita

3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 C. tequila
1/4 C. sugar
juice of 2 limes
approx. 10 ice cubes
5-6 mint leaves, chopped (optional)
Fresh strawberries and blueberries for garnish

In a blender, puree strawberries, tequila, lime juice and sugar until smooth. Add ice and blend. Mix in mint. Pour and serve.
