The difference between a margarita and a daiquiri is that daiquiri’s have rum! They have similar ingredients and are both very citrusy. Margaritas originated in Mexico and daiquiris came from Cuba!

What kind of tequila should I use in a frozen strawberry margarita?

For a blended margarita with lots of flavor and juice I always use a blanco tequila. Mostly because the tequila is so masked by fruity flavor, so save the good stuff (like reposado) for sipping. Casamigos is my fav tequila, it’s a bit pricey but worth it. 

Frozen strawberry margaritas with simple syrup or agave nectar

As far as sweetener goes you can use simple syrup, which is just equal parts water and sugar boiled down.

You can use agave nectar, a classic sweetener in most margaritas. OR you can totally leave the sweetener out if you prefer a tartier/lighter cocktail.

    This recipe is super easy and soooo delicious! I’ve never tried to make frozen margaritas at home — for some reason, it always intimidated me — but this was so easy! I also love the fact that you can take the recipe and switch it up and maybe add raspberry or another fruit. I will definitely be making these often throughout summer 2020.

      Amazing! Sometimes I don’t even add sweetener because they’re so fruity on their own. But agreed, I hate a cocktail that’s too sweet!

    Very easy to make and super fresh using real strawberries vs. some store bought mix. Also, nice alcohol amounts – just enough to get a little buzz 😉
