Strawberry Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I have a delicious margarita recipe to share with you, so I'll just get right to it!

Strawberry Margarita
Serves: 2

1/2 cup lime juice (about three limes)
1/2 cup strawberry puree (recipe below)
1/2 cup margarita mix (I used homemade, recipe below)
6 oz. tequila

Combine all ingredients in a jar or cocktail shaker and combine.  Best served on the rocks.

Strawberry Puree
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 tsp agave

Combine berries and agave in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.  You can remove the seeds by placing the puree in a fine mesh sieve, but I don't mind the seeds and just left them in the puree.

Margarita Mix
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
Juice and zest of one orange, lime, and lemon

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture comes to a slow boil and the sugar is dissolved.  Strain to remove the zest and chill.
