Strawberry Margarita Slurpees for Cinco de Mayo-with or without alcohol, they're tasty and fun to drink

 

I have to tell you, I don’t do Cinco de Mayo. Not that I don’t love great food and fun drinks, it’s just not a big holiday in rural Georgia.  Now that doesn’t mean that when my bloggy friends want to have a party, I’m not all in.

I actually wanted to make a cake but after 2 attempts, I still wasn’t happy with the flavor. I’ll keep working on it, I know when I finally get it right it’ll be fantastic.

So meantime, the kids came home and spot the margarita mix. My kids are all about fruity drinks, minus the alcohol until they’re legal. (I will admit, all of my children have tasted wine and champagne but we don’t let them taste the good drinks, lol)

So Last summer, we spotted this slurpee recipe from Mandy’s Recipe Box and my son fell in love with it. For weeks, he was making slurpees every day.

Every flavor, every brand, he never made a bad slurpee.

Then one day it stopped. I think because school started back up.  And you know the attention span of teenagers, out of sight, out of mind. Unless it’s the new coolest game on X-Box.

We had the club soda, so why not?

These were great without the alcohol but even better with a shot of tequila, sitting on the back deck on a Friday afternoon. The perfect way to start off the weekend.

  1. We don’t celebrate Cinco De Mayo either, apparently rural-ish Missouri isn’t all that festive either. LOL I’m okay with that especially if I can some of these wonderful “slurpees”. What I love is that everyone in the entire family can enjoy them, and they can be modified for the adults. So smart.
    Great recipe! You made them SO pretty!

  2. When I was a kid it was the biggest treat to go get a slurpee. I haven’t had one in years. Now I see this and I’m craving one again. Nice!

  3. Now this is what I call a porch drink! Sitting outside, feet up, dog running around and this lovely drink…adult version, please :)…in my hand. Aahh.

  4. These slurpees are making me wish it were summertime and I had a porch to sip them on!!

  5. Yup, this would be my drink of choice at any Cinco de Mayo party! Gorgeous AND delicious cocktail!!!

  6. Thank God I’m over 21 and can have tequila in my strawberry margarita slurpee! This looks so good, Joan – I’m smacking my lips in thirst over here. I love the sugar rimmed cups and the strawberry tucked into the rim.

  7. Oh yes, I would slurp(ee) this right up.

  8. Oh my, do these look good. They look so fresh and inviting. Hmm, it is Friday…

  9. We celebrate here in Iowa, because most of us are California transplants…it reminds us of home :)

  10. If I come over can you have one standing by? With the tequila of course!

  11. Yummy! Slurpee anything is good, and margaritas!
