Strawberry Margarita Made From Scratch – YUM!

Margaritas are awesome.  Frozen margaritas are REALLY awesome.  But do you know what is not so awesome? For me, it’s when that awesome margarita tastes like syrup and has an after taste making you think twice about taking a second sip.  Well not this recipe…using the best and freshest fruits and quality tequila, you can say goodbye to that store bought margarita mix.  Time to make a margarita, like the bartender at heart that you are, and savor every sip!

And to make it even easier for you to create we have the how-to video from Chow so you can see what your creation will look like.  Leaving you nothing to do but salivate while you get straight to work in the kitchen making one for yourself! I know you will love this as much as I do.  Cheers!
