Most of the recipes for frozen margaritas that we've found call for frozen strawberries to replace some of the ice cubes. Others call for commercial strawberry puree - sweetened and flavored.
But we just want to put in a good word for fresh strawberries - so cheap and plentiful right now at the markets. Even the big, pillowy California strawberries are good in margaritas; their tiny crunchy seeds and sweet freshness take the tired old frozen margarita out of restaurant cliché and put it squarely back in our drink rotation.
To make a frozen margarita with strawberries, just add a few cups of ice and a quart or so of fresh strawberries to our margarita recipe below, and whiz in batches in the blender. Happy slurping!
