Why KJ Loves Strawberry Smash Peach Margaritas:
These Strawberry Smash Peach Margaritas hold a special place in my heart. They are the epitome of summer in a glass. Not only was this the first recipe that went live after my website got completely re-hauled the first time, but they were also the first margarita to hit KJ & Company! Talk about a fiesta! The combination of the smashed strawberries and the sweet peach juice are perfect inside the margarita. I promise you, these Strawberry Smash Peach Margaritas go down SMOOTH!
You can find this ingredient in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. The Simply Orange brand makes a Simply Peach juice that is delicious! (If you have some left over, it’s great with breakfast.)
You’ll get the best results with fresh strawberries. But that’s not the only way to make these crowd-pleasers.
Feeling a little lazy? Supermarket strawberries looking less-than-fresh? No worries. We’ve got you. Thaw out frozen strawberries for an almost-as-good, easier variation.
Let’s talk tequila. Which is the best to use? Our top choice is a silver or gold tequila like Jose Cuervo Especial. But you can really use any tequila you like!
What is Muddling?
This margarita recipe is unique because it includes muddled fruit. Muddling is lightly smashing fruit to release its flavor. Using an actual muddler is the easiest way to prepare this drink. But if you don’t have one, get creative! You could use a meat tenderizer, a spoon…the key is to get a nice smash.
Serving Ideas for Strawberry Smash Peach Margaritas
For a crowd
Set up a serve-yourself drink bar for a large group. Muddle the strawberries and sugar in a large bowl. Then pour the mixture and the peach juice into a pitcher. Serve tequila and lime wedges on the side. Then enjoy a hassle-free evening.
This drink is also delicious without tequila. Simply mix up the base ingredients and leave the alcohol out for a fun time, no booze required.
Frost it up with an icy twist. Throw all of the ingredients in a blender, pour it into glasses, and enjoy!
Salt or sugar the rims
If you have time, chill the glasses. Cut a notch in a lime and run it around the edges of the glasses. Then put salt or sugar on a plate that’s slightly larger than the glass rims. We love Himalayan pink salt because it’s less potent than regular salt. Twist the rims of the glasses in the salt, and you’re on your way to a fiesta!
