To make a Frozen Strawberry Margarita you just need frozen strawberries plus the traditional margarita ingredients like; triple sec, lime, agave and silver tequila. Blend it all up and pour it into a glass with a salted (or sugared) rim! Repeat as desired : )
The nice thing about this frozen drink is that you are not adding ice (like a traditional Frozen Margarita), you only rely on the frozen strawberries for the “frostiness”. This allows your drink to stay frozen for MUCH longer than a drink filled with ice.
This is the perfect tequila cocktail for a hot summer day! Great for a BBQ or a Mexican Dinner night! Another great strawberry cocktail is this Strawberry Basil Margarita or this Roasted Strawberry Margarita.
Pictured are the 6 ingredients you need to make a Frozen Strawberry Margarita:
Frozen Strawberries: Buy whole or chopped frozen strawberries for this margarita. Avoid the strawberries in syrup or sugar as that will make your drink too sweet.
Silver Tequila: A mid-grade silver tequila will be perfectly great for this drink, save the more expensive tequila for Tequila Sodas where you can really taste the nuanced flavor of the tequila!
Fresh Lime Juice: Always, always, always use fresh squeezed lime juice when making margaritas.
Triple Sec: normally I choose to use a Cointreau in Margaritas. But for this super flavored frozen strawberry margarita recipe you can just use a triple sec. Save the expensive Cointreau for something like A Margarita on the Rocks!
Agave: I recommend using a light agave as it will have a lighter taste that won’t affect the overall flavor of your drink, it just adds a nice sweetness.
Kosher Salt and/or Sugar: Choose your blend of sugar and kosher salt for the rim you want.
- All kosher salt for a traditional margarita rim.
- All sugar for more of a “daquiri” style rim.
- Use a 50/50 mix of kosher salt and sugar for a sweet and salty rim.
When you have a super flavorful and fruitful cocktail there is no need to pour $50+ silver tequila into your drink. A mid-range silver tequila will work perfect.
We love any of these mid-range brands:
- Jose Cuervo Traditional
No Ice Needed
Nope! We are not adding ice to this Frozen Strawberry Margarita. The frozen strawberry is enough to keep this cocktail frosty.
When you add ice to a frozen drink the ice melts quickly and you end up with a watery drink. By NOT adding ice the drink stays frozen for a long time, to the last sip!
Also, by not adding ice the flavor of the strawberry is more pronounced. Yum!
Quick How To
Strawberry Frozen Margaritas are pretty easy to make. Once you gather all the ingredients it is just a matter of measuring and blending:

Serve in the prepared 8 oz glass. Garnish with a lime wedge or a fresh strawberry.
Frozen Strawberry Margaritas for a Crowd
You can absolutely double, triple or quadruple this recipe! The written recipe is for one Strawberry Margarita, so simply multiply by the amount of drinks you want to make.
Another option is to hover over the “servings” in the recipe card and then move the slider up to the amount of drinks you want to make. It will change the amount of ingredients required.
Make sure you blend it long enough, around 30 seconds, to puree all the frozen strawberries.
Keep the strawberries frozen until it’s time to blend the margarita
Triple sec is totally fine here. No need to spend the big bucks on Cointreau for this strawberry cocktial.
Add a pinch of kosher salt to the blender, it will bring out the sweetness of the strawberry and enhance the tequila flavors.
Use a blend of kosher salt and sugar on the rim for a sweet and salty balance.
Don’t add ice! The frozen strawberry is enough to make this a “frozen” drink. Adding ice will just dilute the flavor.
