Margarita of the month! Simple Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita Recipe

Oh hey again! I have decided to start a little monthly segment and I’ll be calling it “Margarita of the Month”. As you might have guessed, I will be sharing a margarita that fits the month or holiday within it. I personally love margaritas and more specifically I really like tequila. Tequila actually has a lot of health benefits (as long as it’s a high quality agave tequila) first and foremost it is a pro and prebiotic which aids in gut health, immune system support and it even helps with lowering blood sugar and cholesterol. Keeping your marg clean and not adding a ton of sugar is key though, if you start adding a bunch of junk it’s going to counteract some of the benefits of tequila. I wanted to showcase the versatility of tequila. Generally speaking most people view margaritas as a summer cocktail so I will be trying to share recipes that convert with the time of year, margaritas are for every month they just need a little tweaking.

When it comes to making our drinks I personally like to use Patron silver or 1800, it costs a little more but the taste is so much better and like most things you are paying for quality. I decided to craft up a Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita this month. It’s the start of fall and I know most people think of pumpkin but I immediately think of strawberry rhubarb pie. Pie is full of sugar so why not find a way to get that delicious flavor without all the sugar? Convinced yet? Haha I am. Scroll down for a step by step recipe!

INGREDIENTS
1 pint of strawberries, sliced 1 oz fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz tequila 1 stalk of rhubarb peeled and chopped
3-4 oz la croix large handful of ice

 

 

 

  1. Slice strawberries, peel rhubarb and slice. Add to pan on stovetop with 1/2 cup of water. Cover and let simmer until strawberries and rhubarb and soft.
  2. Slowly pour mixture over small strainer to eliminate pulp and seeds. I mashed mine with a spoon to get all the extra juice out. Throwout pulp or feed it to your chickens if you have them 🙂
  3. Add lime juice to mixture.
  4. At this point you can add your tequila to a blender with the mixture or you can pour it over the rocks and top off with La Croix. *I did a sugar rim with this specific margarita but this could be omitted. If you find that your drink isn’t sweet enough you can add some agave nectar to the fruit reduction as it is simmering.*
  5. Enjoy!
