Sigh… Is there anything better than a fresh fruity cocktail on a sweltering summer day?

I think not.

Something about sipping a berry beverage to cool off always puts a smile on my face. And if a few friends have one with me? Even better!

Todays’s Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe is so simple to make and so aromatic, it’s hard to stop with just one.

You can make this Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe all year, but it’s best in the summer when the berries are ripe, sweet, and sun-kissed.

The base of the beverage includes fresh hulled strawberries, tequila, triple sec, and lime juice.

However, I like to add two surprise ingredients to intensify the flavor… Fresh mint leaves, and chunky strawberry jam.

The addition of strawberry jam sweetens the Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe, and provides a double-blast of strawberry flavor, making the fresh strawberries really shine.

Adding the mint leaves, give the strawberry essence a little unexpected pop of freshness and contrast.
