Fresh Strawberry Marg-alrightas

Prep Time: 10 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4 drinks


* 2 pints ripe strawberries
* 4 ripe limes, juiced, plus 1 lime wedged for rimming and garnish
* 8 rounded tablespoons sugar
* 1/2 cup orange juice
* 2 trays ice cubes
* 8 shots good quality tequila
* Coarse salt, to rim glasses


Reserve 4 strawberries with tops for garnish and split them. Clean,

Add all but the reserved strawberries to a blender. To that, add the
