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.
