Strawberry Basil Margarita

Serves: 2p


  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 pint fresh strawberries (about 8-10 strawberries if growing with our seedless pods)
  • 1/2 cup blanco tequila 
  • 1.5 oz Cointreau 
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 basil leaves, chiffonaded
  • Ice 
  • 1/3 cup Kosher salt, for rim


  1. Step One: Add strawberries, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and honey to a blender and blend until the strawberries are pulverized.
  2. Step Two: Chiffonade the basil and then do a quick rough chop of the basil to make it smaller. Add to the cocktail shaker and muddle to produce the oils and brighten the flavor of the basil.
  3. Step Three: Pour the blended margarita ingredients into the shaker and stir. 
  4. Step Four: Pour 1/3 cup of salt onto a small plate. Use a lime wedge around the rims of the glasses. Dip the glass top into the salt and add 2-3 ice cubes. Pour in the margaritas and serve.
