Add strawberries, tequila, lime juice, honey, and orange liqueur to a blender. Pulse until completely smooth. Let the mixture rest for about 3 minutes, then skim off the foam on top. Taste, and add extra tequila or sweetener if desired.
If you would like to serve these in salt-rimmed glasses, simply run a lime wedge around the top of each glass. Then dip the top of the glass upside-down in a bowl of coarse margarita salt. Garnish the glasses with fresh strawberries and/or lime slices if desired.
Fill up each glass about half full with ice, then pour the margaritas over the ice and serve immediately.
Add about 3-4 cups of ice to your blender with the strawberry margarita mixture, and pulse until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
1. Cook raspberries, blackberries, sugar, and 1/4 cup (60ml) water in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar is dissolved and berries have released their color, 12–15 minutes. You do not have to reduce the liquid. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing the fruit, cover and allow to chill.
2. For each cocktail glass, add 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and top with Champagne. Garnish with 2 raspberries and serve.
There are three things to keep in mind when making lemon drop martinis at home. Fresh lemon juice is best, use a quality vodka, and serve the martini very cold. A few of our favorite mid-priced vodka brands are Kettle One, Stolichnaya (Stoli), and Tito’s.
If you plan to make the lemon sugar, it is best to remove the zest from the lemon before juicing them for the martini. Then when you need to moisten the glass so that the sugar sticks, use the leftover lemon halves after juicing.
Add sugar to a plate then rub the zest into the sugar with your fingers until tinted yellow and fragrant.
Moisten the rim of a chilled martini glass with the juiced lemon, turn the glass upside down and twist into the lemon sugar, set aside.
Add vodka, Cointreau (or triple sec), lemon juice, simple syrup and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 30 seconds or until very cold. Strain into the prepared martini glass and serve immediately.
A beautiful and light winter cocktail made with fresh grapefruit juice, vodka, lemon, rosemary and honey.
The perfect margarita is all about fresh, crisp flavors barely tempered by triple sec and sugar. After testing all the ratios, this is the one we reach for.
Why this recipe works:
Note: This recipe works best with a high quality tequila. If you’re using a budget brand that’s a little harsh, swap the proportions for the Cointreau and lime juice and add 1/4 ounce simple syrup to each drink.
Run lime wedge around the outer rims of two rocks glasses and dip rims in salt. Set aside.
In cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice. Fill with ice and shake until thoroughly chilled, about 15 seconds (the bottom of a metal shaker should frost over).
Fill glasses with fresh ice and strain margarita into both glasses. Garnish with lime wheels and serve.
In a shaker, muddle the cucumber.
Add the vodka, St-Germain, lemon juice and simple syrup, and fill with ice.
Shake vigorously and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with mint, cucumber slices and lemon zest and top with lemonade or club soda.
