Strawberry Lemonade Margaritas are a refreshing summer take on your standard margarita. They combine all the flavors of summertime, tart lemons and sweet, juicy strawberries with the always popular margarita. A quick and easy adult cocktail to make for two or a crowd.
Lemonade is the perfect refreshing drink for summer but these deliciously fresh and bright Strawberry Lemonade Margaritas are even better!
Anyone that likes margaritas, especially strawberry margaritas, will love this version. They’re so easy to make too! All you do is combine a little frozen concentrated lemonade with fresh strawberries, a little mint and the usual tequila and triple sec.
This drink is more sweet than tart so the rim of the glasses are coated with coarse sugar instead of salt. I also added some silver decorating sugar just to give it a little more pizazz! Doesn’t it look pretty? Now check out just how easy this summery cocktail is to make.
Gather the ingredients to make these strawberry lemonade margaritas. You’ll need lemonade concentrate, tequila, triple sec, strawberries, mint sprigs and a few lemon wedges.
