Strawberry Margaritas are fruity, fresh, and perfect for summer! Made with tequila, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice, and homemade strawberry simple syrup. This cocktail can be sipped on the rocks or frozen.
This Strawberry Margarita Recipe is refreshing for hot summer weather! It serves one, but you can double or quadruple the recipe … or just savor a cocktail all to yourself!
Make these for summertime parties, Cinco de Mayo, or mix ‘em up to cheers with friends on a Saturday night! You can drink them over ice or blended if you’re craving a frosty treat.
And don’t forget to line the rim with your choice of margarita salt or sugar!
This cocktail recipe is made with simple ingredients and completely from scratch – no storebought syrups here! You’ll love the fresh, fruity, and delicious flavors in this drink!
Alcohol: These have two different boozes to enhance the fruity taste: orange liqueur and of course, tequila! You can use triple sec, Cointreau, or Grand Marnier for the liqueur. And I recommend a white or silver tequila for this recipe.
Fruit: These drinks include an ounce of homemade Strawberry Simple Syrup and a generous squeeze of lime juice. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, citrusy, and tart flavors.
Garnishes: Run a lime wedge around the top of your glass then be sure to dip the rim of your cups in salt or sugar. Use fresh strawberries and lime wedges for garnish!
If making this frozen, skip the ice and use frozen strawberries for an even more intense strawberry flavor! Use 1 cup of frozen strawberry per serving and blend until smooth!

And in the spirit of making them from scratch, try making it with this Strawberry Simple Syrup Recipe. It adds an extra punch of juicy flavor if you’re craving a fresh Strawberry Margarita!
Begin by adding Tequila.
Then, add the orange liqueur.
Next, pour in the fresh-squeezed lime juice.
Add in the strawberry simple syrup.
Cover and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds.
Pour into sugar or salt rimmed classes filled halfway with ice. Short glasses work best or wide mouth mason jars are great too in the summer!
Expert Tip: Two drinks should fit in most standard cocktail shakers, so feel free to double the recipe!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the difference between a strawberry daiquiri and a Strawberry Margarita?
The biggest difference is the alcohol: daiquiris are made with rum while margaritas have tequila! Try my Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe too – you won’t be sorry!
How much alcohol is in a Strawberry Margarita?
This one has 2.5 ounces of alcohol per drink, so it’s pretty boozy! But if you stick with one, it’ll be just enough to enjoy yourself without being over-the-top. 😉
Do I need triple sec for Margaritas?
You will need an orange liqueur, but it doesn’t have to be Triple Sec, you can use Cointreau or Grand Marnier instead.
How do you make Frozen Strawberry Margaritas?
I love this recipe because it can either be served on the rocks or frozen!
To give your drink a slushie-like consistency, simply put all the ingredients in a blender and add either a cup of ice or frozen strawberries! Blend until completely smooth, pour in sugar or salt-rimmed glasses, and serve.
How To Make a Pitcher of Margaritas for a Group?
I would increase the recipe by 8 and mix up ahead of time and store in the fridge until ready to serve over ice.
