These Strawberry Mint Margaritas are so refreshing and perfect for spring and summer! They're made with a easy mint simple syrup, freshly puréed strawberry juice, tequila, Grand Marnier, and lime juice of course! Pair these with some chips and guac and you're all set!
Make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir in the mint leaves and remove from heat. Let cool completely before removing the mint.
Make the strawberry juice. Add the halved strawberries to a blender and blend until completely smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl (you may need to use a spoon or spatula to help push it through the strainer) until you are left with juice.
To make the margarita, moisten the edge of a glass with a lime wedge and rim in margarita salt. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Add the tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, strawberry purée, and simple syrup to the shaker and shake for 30 seconds. Pour into the glass and garnish with halved strawberries, a sprig of mint, and a lime wedge. Enjoy immediately!
*The strawberry purée will make enough for 4 or 5 margaritas.
*The simple syrup can be made up to a week in advance and kept in the fridge! This makes extra too!
