If it's hot outside you know you need a frozen drink...so why not make Frozen Strawberry Coconut Margaritas?? This refreshing and delicious drink is quick and easy and just what you need by the pool or at a party.
When it's HOT in Portland and I need a cold drink, I find my blender ASAP. Luckily I always have fresh strawberry syrup in my fridge from the strawberries we pick every summer, so I usually make a margarita.
First I made a frozen strawberry margarita with regular tequila and it was good. But I wanted something more, so I tried it with coconut tequila and will never make it any other way again.
How to get Coconut in a Margarita.
Did you know there is Coconut Tequila?? The brand 1800 makes a Coconut Tequila and it is a game-changer! It's definitely sweet but is packed with coconut flavor that makes a delicious margarita!
And, who doesn't like Strawberry, Coconut, and Lime together? I wasn't entirely sure if this combination would work but I had to try it. And guess what??? It was AMAZING!
How to make a Strawberry Coconut Margarita
Get all of your ingredients together. Place them in a blender with 1 cup of ice and blend! That's it. The most time-consuming part is the strawberry syrup, which is very easy and the recipe is below.
Remember, fresh strawberries and fresh lime juice will give you the best results. However, you can use frozen strawberries in a pinch.
If you choose not to make strawberry syrup (which you can also make with frozen berries), add another ½ cup of strawberries and maybe some simple syrup or agave syrup if your berries aren't that sweet.
What glass should you use?
You should use a margarita glass if you have one! As you can see in my photo, I used a plastic margarita glass when I was lounging outside by my pool (inflatable pool).
Summertime is the perfect time to find plastic glasses, especially margarita glasses. I purchased these at my local grocery store but I have also seen them at places like Target or even the Dollar Store.
Another awesome idea would be to find the glasses that you can freeze ahead of time. Then your frozen margarita will stay nice and cold even in the hot sun!
How to make Strawberry Syrup
Take about equal amounts of sugar, water, and fruit and add them to a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring and mashing the fruit.
Boil for 3-4 minutes and then remove from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool before straining the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl.
You can discard the solids, but I highly recommend using them as a topping or adding them to your cocktail or another treat!
Fresh Strawberry syrup is delicious and adds all the sweetness you need for this drink. If you don't want to make syrup, skip it! Instead, add fresh strawberries and some agave syrup, or add a tablespoon of strawberry jelly with fresh strawberries and you will still have an excellent margarita!
What else to use the Strawberry Syrup for:
- Make a Strawberry Gin Cocktail
- Or, use it in place of strawberry daiquiri mix in this Hennessy cocktail from Cooking Frog
- Pour over vanilla ice cream
- Strawberry Lemonaid
- Add it to a vanilla frosting to make strawberry
- Pour over cheesecake
