This margarita came about one day that I was craving a frozen margarita and I had just bought strawberries. The strawberries were on sale for crazy cheap, ($1.98 for two pounds!), and I immediately had the urge to freeze some and make a drink. I froze the strawberries overnight, decided to thrown them in a blender with a few other things, and these beauties were born. My husband was quite disappointing with the fact that I only had enough for 2 drinks and requested more ASAP. Naturally I had to make the sacrifice and get more strawberries!
