In celebration of National Margarita Day here is a throwback recipe from the days of Señorita Time (old blog name, no longer exists). Allow me to reintroduce: The Señorita Margarita! This is a strawberry and rosé based cocktail but, don’t worry, there’s still tequila!
This is my own original recipe and a great solution for left over Rosé, particularly Spanish ones! This is very easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find.
What you will need:
Wine, Margarita, or tumbler glasses
Pink Himalayan salt (rim garnish; optional)
1 cup frozen strawberries
3/4 cup rosé wine (we used Abadal Rosat, which is a deep red Spanish rosè. If you chose to use a different rosé that is ok, too! The margarita may not be as red in color, more of a pretty soft pink)
3/4 cup Patrón Silver Tequila (we love Patron, but any top shelf tequila will also work. The quality of tequila really makes a difference)
1/2 cup ice (plus more for the glasses when it’s time to serve)
1/4 cup Patrón Citrónge Extra Fine Orange Liquor (Cointreau or Triple Sec also works well)
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1-2 tablespoons of Agave Nectar (depending on how sweet you like your margaritas. Simple syrup will also work well)
Combine all your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Rim your glasses by first wetting the rim with water and dipping them in the salt. Add additional ice to the glass and pour in your Señorita Margarita. Garnish with a fresh strawberry.
