Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

This post brought to you by Bahama Breeze. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Katie’s Cucina.

Frozen Strawberry Margaritas Today is National Margarita Day and I’m celebrating by sharing my recipe for frozen strawberry margaritas. I know… it might be a little ironic that I’ve made frozen margaritas while it’s freezing outside (yes, Florida is freezing too), but I think we all are dreaming of summer. And since we are dreaming of summer and Florida strawberries are in season I figured a refreshing frozen strawberry margarita was in order! Frozen Strawberry Margaritas 1 To coincide with National Margarita Day, one of my favorite restaurants, Bahama Breeze is kicking off a “Viva La ‘Rita” from National Margarita Day, today,February 22nd to Cinco de Mayo, May 5th. Bahama Breeze Viva La Rita will be celebrating everyone’s favorite drink, the margarita in a fresh new way that will put sunshine in your smile and get everyone ready for warmer weather.

So if you live near a Bahama Breeze go and celebrate with their new margaritas (four new ones to be exact), Friday night parties, giveaways and live music during #VivaLaRita! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom–I’m giving away a $100 Bahama Breeze gift card! Frozen Strawberry Margaritas 2 Making your own frozen margarita’s at home is very easy to do. I started by cutting the stems off of 16oz worth of fresh strawberries. Then I poured in the lime aid, white granulated sugar, tequila, and Cointreau. Lastly, add in the ice and then it’s time to blend. You’ll want to let the strawberry margarita blend for at least 20 seconds to make sure it’s completely smooth. Before your ready to pour the frozen strawberry margaritas you’ll want to slice a wedge of lime in half and rub it around the rims of your glasses. Then flip the glass upside down and swirl it into the strawberry sugar. I purchased this special sugar while we were visiting France 2 years ago. I save it for “special occasions”. I do know; however, that specialty food stores like Whole Foods carries the flavored sugars. Frozen Strawberry Margaritas 3 Once your glasses are prepped your ready to pour the frozen strawberry margaritas into the glasses. You’ll want to garnish with another lime wedge and a fresh strawberry. These margaritas scream summer and after each sip I would take it made me feel that much closer to summer! Frozen Strawberry Margaritas 4 Next month, my husband and I have a date night planned for Bahama Breeze to attend Viva La ‘Rita. I’ll be recapping our experience, good times and of course yummy margaritas with you guys. Remember to visit your local Bahama Breeze between Feb 22 and May 5th to experience Viva La ‘Rita for your self!

    These look fabulous!  It’s strawberry season and I buy a flat a week.  I’ll probably have to pick up more because I’ll use them all for this recipe!  Yum! & Thanks for sharing:)
