Not that you need an excuse, but February 22 is National Margarita Day. While this may not seem like the best time of year to imbibe in a poolside-favorite cocktail, I don’t believe there is a bad time to enjoy a margarita—much like there’s never a bad time for ice cream. So we decided to combine the two and create a strawberry margarita milkshake to celebrate.
Dubious? We were too. It wasn’t until we popped the top off our blender and tasted it that we were sold on this boozy blend.
With ice cream, margarita mix, and frozen berries, the concoction goes down like an innocent key lime dessert but with far more fun results. Note that we originally used two cups of strawberries, but on second try, found that a little less than a cup gave the perfect balance.
Top with whipped cream and a lime wedge and start sipping. You’ll soon forget that it’s even winter.
