strawberry basil margaritas

2011_07_21-Margarita_rect540

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
  • 10-12 strawberries
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups tequila (gold or silver)

Empty the limede concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 1/2 cans of water and 1 1/2 (18 ounces, or 2 1/4 cups) cans of tequila (or a bit less, if you don’t want your drinks to be quite as strong).

Hull the strawberries, slice lengthwise, and add to the pitcher. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavor release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher, too. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.

When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, the margaritas will be a pale pink color.
