Minty Strawberry Jargaritas – Pitcher and Individual Portions

653

Jargaritas are hands down my greatest recipe/innovation. In short – you create a shortcut fruity margarita by using ANY fruit jam, which takes the place of both having to blend up or muddle fruit, AND the simple syrup or agave.

Oh, and you make the entire thing in a JAR, and then drink it out of a JAR!

But today we are making jargaritas for ALL – aka a “pitcher” of jargaritas. I’ve written this Minty Strawberry Jargarita recipe to serve four or one, just in case you’re not in need of four margaritas right now.

Check out the IGTV how-to video for this recipe!

Minty Strawberry Jargaritas for All

Servings 4 people

Equipment

  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Large (32 ounce) jar with a lid
  • Muddler or wooden spoon

Ingredients

  • 2 large mint sprigs 
  • 1 cup blanco tequila
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup triple sec

Instructions

  • Throw 2 mint sprigs into the bottom of your glass and muddle a muddler or the bottom of a wooden spoon.
  • Pour in 1 cup blanco tequila, the juice of 2 lemons, the juice of 2 limes, 1/4 cup strawberry jam, and 1/4 cup triple sec. Place the lid tightly on the jar and shake thoroughly to combine.
  • Pour over 4 rocks glasses filled to the brim with ice.

Substitutions

  • Mint: Try using basil or thyme instead! Or just omit 🙂
  • Blanco tequila: any kind of tequila works, but I hugely prefer blanco in a margarita. Vodka, Gin, or even bourbon would also work here!
  • Lime and lemon juice: use all of one, or mix and match as needed. If you like a sweet margarita, you can also swap in an orange for 2 of the lemons or limes. You can also swap in a grapefruit for THREE of the lemons or limes!
  • Strawberry jam: ANY JAM! Seriously, anything! Fig jam might be a little weird. But otherwise ANYTHING!
  • Triple sec: cointreau, or omit, or 1/2 an orange for the orangey flavor. You might need to add a little agave, simple syrup, or honey if you don’t use triple sec since it adds a lot of sweetness.
