Strawberry Margarita & KitchenAid Giveaway

A classic strawberry margarita with freshly squeezed juice and plenty of fresh berries! A margarita is the perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Strawberry Margarita - a classic strawberry margaritas with freshly squeezed juice and fresh berries!

Strawberries are not only my favorite berry, they are my absolute favorite food. I am pretty sure I could survive on strawberries, water and chocolate. In celebration of my favorite berry, this week will be dedicated to five all-new strawberry recipes. I promise there will be something for everyone, from healthy to sweet and everything in between. At the end of the week, I’m sharing a round-up of over 50 strawberry recipes. Let’s get the week started with a classic homemade strawberry margarita perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

Not only am I celebrating with new strawberry recipes all week, I am also excited to help Naturipe Farms kick off the Very Berry Month of May. Naturipe berries are always fresh, flavorful and incredibly berrylicious! With organic varieties available, Naturipe berries are a great way to add something colorful and nutritious to every meal.

Strawberry Margarita - a classic strawberry margaritas with freshly squeezed juice and fresh berries!

So what makes the perfect margarita? Freshly squeezed juice and plenty of fresh berries. Oh, and the tequila helps too. Did you know that citrus enhances the flavor of berries? The acid in the limes helps bring out the strawberry flavor in this margarita. This recipe is quick, easy and can be adapted depending on your taste.

      Oh, those sound great, Jen!

  2. Christie - Food Done Light

    This is my kind of margarita. I love using fresh fruit juices. The strawberries give it such a gorgeous color too.

  3. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness

    I have never had a strawberry margarita…but they sound life changing! LOVE these girlfriend! Pinned!

  4. Kim (Feed Me, Seymour)

    When it comes to eating an actual strawberry, I’ll pass. But anything strawberry flavored is fine by me! So I’ll take two of these tasty margs!

    • Ashley

      I can’t believe you don’t like fresh strawberries, Kim! But, I will definitely share one of these fresh margaritas with you :)

  5. Lisa Brown

    I don’t eat strawberries often, when I do it is usually strawberry shortcake with whipped cream

  6. Katie

    I love strawberry smoothies.

  7. Zainab @ Blahnik Baker

    These are absolutely perfect!!! And they are definitely my new favorite way to enjoy strawberries. can’t wait to try!!

    Love a margarita and this one looks awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Ashley

      Thanks for stopping by, Paula!

  9. Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    Beautiful photos, Ashley! That drink looks delicious.

    I think my favorite thing to make with strawberries is Strawberry Quinoa Salad!

    • Ashley

      Thanks, Julie! Strawberry Quinoa salad is a favorite of mine too!

  10. Natalie @ Tastes Lovely

    The first drink I ordered on my 21st birthday was a strawberry margarita! But it was one of those super big ones that looks like it’s in a fish bowl. The whole table shared one. Pretty sure they used that “premade strawberry” mix, and they just stirred in the tequila. This one sounds MUCH better! Can’t wait to see the rest of your strawberry recipes : )

    • Ashley

      Oh yes, those fish bowl drinks! For some reason the margaritas you buy don’t taste nearly as good as the ones you can make at home!

  11. Nutmeg Nanny

    Yum! I love margaritas but they get even better when you throw in strawberries.

  12. Deb

    Breathtakingly refreshing! What a splendid margarita and give away!

    • Ashley

      Thanks, Deb! Good luck!

  13. Deb Harrington

    Hello again Ashley! I adore Strawberry Margaritas, unfortunately I cannot partake due to medication restrictions. :-( However a fresh and healthy Strawberry Smoothie would suffice. Anticipating the next four recipes. Have a beautiest day :-)

    • Ashley

      Strawberry smoothies are just as good, Deb! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  14. Meg

    Well, that margarita looks positively refreshing! I absolutely love strawberries, and I think one of my favorite ways to use them — though not the healthiest! — is in strawberry pretzel salad, which my mom has been making for my birthday since I was a kid. Day to day, though, I just pop them plain as a snack or mix them into my Greek yogurt for breakfast.

    • Ashley

      You need to tell me more about this strawberry pretzel salad! Sounds incredible, Meg!

  15. Lisa @ Cooking with Curls

    Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries for my kids! You and my daughter sound a lot alike. She practically does live on strawberries, water, and chocolate!! 😉

    • Ashley

      Oh, I love cheesecake stuffed strawberries, Lisa! I’m glad that I’m not the only one with a chocolate and strawberry addiction :)

    • Ashley

      Thanks, Ela!

    I love this time of year here in Florida…strawberry festivals and strawberries galore. I love to buy a flat from the Markets on the weekend and then make strawberry icecream, strawberry lemonade and just eat them straight up…heaven.

    • Ashley

      Yes, one of the benefits of living in Florida is all of the fresh strawberries. I can’t get enough of them!

    I sprinkle a little sugar on them and put them in the fridge for a day or two. Then I put some in a glass with a little bit of the strawberry juice and pour lemonade over it. Everyone loves it but we usually just wash them and eat them fresh to avoid drinking too much sugar.
