Strawberry Margaritas, Hola Bonita

Do you know what is really fun to do after a long day of work?  Create a new margarita by mixing and tasting.  As I write this I’m on my second Strawberry Margarita and happy with my creation.  With this week’s Friday Foodie Fix secret ingredient being strawberries and Cinco de Mayo approaching, I thought there must be some way to combine the two.  I like margaritas but they can be extremely sweet. Also, because I don’t make them very often, if I go out and buy the Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Grand Marnier  the bottles just sit around and go to waste by evaporating before I use them again.  I wanted a drink that used fruit and tequila and a little agave.    So here it is.  I really like the color and taste.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I am!  Oh and these are gluten free and dairy free.

    Diane – This sounds yummy! Do you think Stevia could work in place of Agave?

    Kirsten- Yes it would work. I'm not sure the ratio so add a little and then add a little more if needed. Let me know how it turns out.
