Sharing is caring!

I am hoping that you are not completely tired of seeing the strawberry rhubarb combination as this cocktail is sultry.  This recipe for a strawberry rhubarb margarita is the perfect companion on a hot summer night.  No need to worry about using the last of the Springtime rhubarb as it is made with rhubarb bitters!

Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

We are gearing up to take a mini-vacation.  A much overdue mini-vacation.  Our last real one, was when we decided to head to France for part of the summer.  Much like that one, this was pretty much a last-minute decision as well, if you call a couple of weeks back last minute.  We had some airline tickets that were due to expire, and a light workload for a couple of weeks.  As well we never had a chance to celebrate our 10 year anniversary last year and wanted to do something special before the 11th sneaks up.  Why not get the hell out of town!!

I can not expire in words how excited we are to be heading out to Todos Santos Mexico.  To be honest, we know nothing about it, just that we will land in Cabo and head north.  We know it will be hot, and that we are staying at a killer hotel.  As well there will be beach time to be enjoyed, as well as great food and drinks.  I can speak for both of us, that we cannot wait to have real Mexican tacos!!!

Back to this cocktail recipe that will quench your thirst.  To get our palates ready for Mexico, we decided to take some ratty looking strawberries and turn them into margaritas.  Normally we are not into fruity or frozen drinks, so I made a simple syrup out of the strawberries.  I took 8 fairly large berries, cut them in half, then mixed with equal parts sugar and water, and let simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes, mashing them up every so often.  Remember it has to be very low heat on the stove, do not let it burn, boil or thicken too much.  Once cooled, I strained the mixture in a fine sieve.  That’s it.  Just add lime juice, tequila and a splash or two of rhubarb bitters.  Perfection for a hot night.

If you want to come along virtually with us on vacation, we will be posting tidbits on our Instagram Feeds – check them out here (Denise & Lenny).

** don’t drink alcohol, just leave out the tequila for a refreshing beverage.

What is the glitter or batch of lethal looking pills on the bottom of the drink?

Hi Liz - thanks for reaching out. Those lethal looking pills are actually the glass. Great drink by the way.

I'm generally very uncreative when it comes to beverage-making, so I especially appreciate ideas like this one. (Gorgeous styling and photography here, by the way.) I've been loving your Instagram feeds from your trip. I was wondering exactly where you guys were... and now I know!

is that crushed lavender on the rim?


Tuesday 18th of June 2013

Hi Tanya, it is actually a black sea salt that we found. Any margarita salt works as well.

Rhubarb adds a bit of tartness to the margarita making it even more perfect. Do try!

Well, consider me jealous of your vacation. I hope it's super relaxing (I know it will be... you'll be on a beach drinking margarita after margarita).

Brian, while we did enjoy margaritas there wasn't a lot of beach time, as it was rather foggy at the beach. Who knew.
