I can’t resist the sweet and spicy combo when it comes to cocktails and this particular mix has been on my “must make” list for quite some time. Sriracha is my go-to accoutrement for just about everything. Pizza, chili, sauces, and of course.. cocktails. Pairing it with the sweetness of seasonal strawberries makes for a refreshing end-of-the-summer cocktail with a much needed kick!
(makes 2 margaritas)
½ cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
½ cup silver tequila
1oz curacao or Triple Sec
Juice from 1 lime
1 Tbs honey (feel free to add more if you like your margaritas sweeter)
1 cup crushed ice
Sugar for rim
1-2 tsp Sriracha
Lime slices and fresh strawberries for garnish
If you want a frozen margarita, freeze the strawberries in a zip-lock bag the night before.
Combine all ingredients, except for the Sriracha, in a food processor or blender and puree until most of the large ice chunks are broken up.
Run a lime slice around the rims of two margarita glasses and dip into a shallow dish filled with sugar to coat the rims. Pour margarita mix into glasses, add a swirl of Sriracha (about a ½ tsp per glass), garnish, and serve. Feel free to add more Sriracha if you’re looking for more spice!
