Berry Margarita Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make this light refreshing beverage…
- Fresh Strawberries – Adds a perky, fresh, and naturally sweet flavor
- Tequila – The base alcohol in any margarita recipe
- Fresh Lime Juice – To pull the tequila flavor to the forefront
- Strawberry Jam – This adds a stronger strawberry flavor and thickness to the margarita
- Triple Sec – A touch of orange flavor to cut through the “bite” of the lime and tequila
- Mint Leaves – Adds tons of fresh herby essence
- Ice – To make this the frozen delicious drink that it is
- Optional Garnish: marg salt, lime slices, extra strawberries
Quick Mixology Tips
- The base of this 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 Cocktail 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.
- Then, of course, the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice offer that traditional margarita appeal we all know and love. Add a salty rim and you’ve got a fabulous cocktail to share with friends!

How to Make A Strawberry Margarita Cocktail
- Start off with a large blender. Add the fresh strawberries, triple sec, tequila, strawberry jam, lime juice, mint leaves, and ice. Make sure the top is on tight.
- Puree all the ingredients until the contents come out smooth.
- Time to serve! You can garnish this drink as well…
- Salt the rim by taking a small bowl or plate and pour some salt in it. If you make margaritas all the time, there is even a product specifically made for margarita salt – Go check it out! Wet the rim of the glass in extra strawberry jam and then dip the rim in the salt so it will stick.
- Pour in the frozen margarita mix.
- Cut a slit in a lime wedge and a strawberry to add to the top of the glass along the rim.
- Enjoy your frozen margarita!

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Much Alcohol is in This Beverage?
Typically, frozen margaritas have a little more alcohol in them because of the ice blended in. There is about a 10 percent alcohol content because the ice will dilute it as it melts.
What is the Difference Between a Strawberry Daiquiri and a Strawberry Marg?
Both of these beverages can be served either on the rocks, or blended with ice. Although to me, they are best “frozen” blended with ice. The main difference between these two cocktails is that daiquiris are usually made with rum while margaritas are usually made with tequila, and sometimes even with beer. So the difference is the type of alcohol, and not so much the way that it is served or made.
What kind of tequila should I use to prevent a hangover?
There isn’t really a scientific answer to this question. Yet rumor states, the kind of tequila that is less likely to give you a hangover is a pure, 100 percent agave tequila. AKA blanco tequila.
Of course, you can still get a hangover with tequila blanco based on how much you drink and the way your body breaks down the alcohol, especially when sugar is added to the mix. So know your limits and drink responsibly!
