These Strawberry Hennessy Margaritas were a special request from my sister Asheley. She had them on vacay in Miami and kept telling me that I needed to try them. Well, I tried them and they are amazing. So fresh and bright from the strawberries and the lime. What I love is how smooth they are. The Hennessy and Grand Marnier blend so well together that you can’t even taste the alcohol. But you sure can feel it!
The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons each of Hennessy and Grand Marnier, but can easily be adjusted for your tastes. Adjusting this recipe is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3. Add one tablespoon each for just a hint of alcohol. Use two tablespoons each for a smooth drink with some body to it. If you really want to feel it, add three tablespoons each of Hennessy and Grand Marnier.
Fresh strawberries are best, but use what you have. You can easily substitute frozen strawberries or a strawberry flavored syrup and make great margaritas. If you do not have lime just add two tablespoons of sweet and sour mix. Here is a great recipe for your own sweet and sour mix from Epicurious.
