The Margarita is the most popular tequila-based cocktail. The drink can be served shaken with ice, on the rocks, or blended with ice.
Strawberries are the most popular berry fruit in the world. They’re a member of the rose family.
Triple Sec is a clear colored orange-flavored liqueur. Although the name means “triple dry” it’s fruity and sweet.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and provide some potassium, fiber, and iron. Using frozen is just as healthful as using fresh. Berries for frozen packaging are picked at the peak of ripeness and start their way through the freezing process 20 minutes from harvest. They use a quick-freezing method to retain the nutrients.
Frozen berries will keep in the freezer for about 6 months.
