It's been a rough week. Not only was it busy with work and preparing to have taco tuesday (a neighborhood event) at our house, the cat decided to show us he was really sick. So, with preparing taco fixin's, black beans from scratch, mexican rice, etc., three vet visits and cleaning the house I was about ready for a tasty beverage. I rarely have alcohol anymore, but a margarita was just sounding so good. This recipe is from a BHG Mexican cooking magazine.
Sugar for rim of glass, if desired
3/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 cups Triple Sec (or other orange flavored liqueur)
1 cup tequila
1/2 cup powdered sugar
dash of Triple Sec
Mix first 5 ingredients well. Rim glass with sugar. Pour margarita over ice cubes. Puree strawberries with the dash of Triple Sec and add to margarita. I don't sugar the rim, I don't need the extra sweetness. Makes approximately 4 drinks.
