Don't all of those drinks look AMAZING?

Let me tell you, I was SO excited when I was invited to participate in a cocktail blog hop.  I had GRAND plans to make a strawberry coconut margaritas from scratch for you all.  That didn't happen {sorry!}.  LIFE HAPPENED.

Let me explain what I mean.  We are knee-deep in our kitchen makeover and work has been CRAZY for me the past couple of weeks.  When last weekend came and went with me not getting to this project, I wasn't worried because I knew I was traveling for work one day this week.  I had to leave my house at 6:45 am and genuinely thought that my out-of-town meetings would be done by lunch time, which would put me home in plenty of time to go to the liquor store, make my drinks and take stunning photos of the result.  Ummmm, not so much.

did leave my house at 6:45 am, which was miserable because the girls were still sleeping when I left, so I didn't get to see them before I left.  I arrived at my destination 10 minutes early.  Woooo hoooo!  But my meetings didn't end until 3:30 and torrential rain slowed down my return drive home considerably.  So, I had to revise my cocktail plans.

At first I was pretty disappointed, but then I realized that many of you, my lovely readers, have REAL LIFE happening to you all the time and so maybe you would rather learn to make a yummy, easy, semi-homemade cocktail than a complicated cocktail with lots of ingredients from two different kinds of stores.  Am I right?!  So, that's what I am here to teach you today.  Read on to learn how to make the quickest, easiest semi-homemade strawberry margaritas EVER!

Preparation {to make 4 cocktails}:

1) Pour two of your pre-made margaritas into your blender.

2) Add 6 to 8 strawberries and two tablespoons of honey and fresh lime juice {use the juice of one whole lime}.

4) Add margarita salt to the rim of your glasses, pour yourself a drink and garnish with a fresh slice of lime.

Now drink up!  These are YUMMY and do not taste store bought, so you could totally fool guests into thinking you slaved over the cocktails.  :)

  4. Yum…Love me some Margaritas! Lately I’ve been enjoying the Bud Light flavored Lime-a-Ritas…Talk about semi-homemade (or tired Momma’s Margarita). I just pour over ice and squeeze a lime. Cannot wait to try yours…LOVE this series!

      Tired Momma’s Margarita–THAT is what I should have called mine! That’s exactly what these are! I will have to try the Bud Light Lime-a-Ritas! Happy Easter, Ariean!

  9. I am all about semi-homemade. I rarely make my own margaritas. The giant $10 bottle of the premade Kirkland’s margaritas are what I use. I do love strawberry margaritas though and I’ll definitely be making these!

    • Tasha A. says:

      Oooooh, Katie, I have never had the Kirkland’s margaritas, but we are die-hard Costco shoppers so I’ll have to add it to my next list!
