An easy slush margarita recipe that packs a big strawberry-flavored punch


  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled, juiced and strained
  • 1.5 ounces liquid cane sugar (such as Hey Shuga! brand)
  • 0.5 ounce Cointreau
  • 2.5 ounces Don Julio tequila reposado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup unsulfured, unsweetened freeze-dried strawberries (I buy them from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1.5 cups ice

For rimming glasses:

  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 tablespoons Miguelito or Tajín


  1. Wash, hull, juice and filter 1 pound of strawberries. 
  2. Add 1.5 oz liquid cane sugar, 0.5 oz Cointreau, 2.5 oz tequila reposado and the juice of one lime to the strawberry juice. 
  3. In a small food processor, pulse 1/3 cup freeze dried strawberries until moderately ground.
  4. Pour strawberry juice mix into blender, add 1.5 cups ice and 1/3 cup freeze-dried strawberries.
  5. Blend on high until smooth and serve.

To rim the glasses: You’ll need two shallow dishes. Squeeze lime juice into one. Add 2 tbsp of Miguelito to the other. Dip the rims of the glasses into the lime juice first, then the Miguelito.  


If you don’t have a food processor, you can add the freeze-dried strawberries straight into the blender and just blend for an extra 60 seconds to make sure they’re fully broken up and incorporated.
