Strawberry Margaritas

It’s almost the weekend so I thought, what would be more fitting than sharing a cocktail recipe?! Since receiving this absolutely adorable Courtly Check bar tool set and Courtly Check cocktail shaker from MacKenzie-Childs, I’ve been experimenting with all different kinds of cocktail recipes. Last weekend, I was in charge of bringing a fun cocktail to my parents for a Memorial Day BBQ, so I tested out these Strawberry Margaritas on my parents and sisters and they were a huge hit!

I wanted to share this recipe and see if this is something you’d be interested in seeing more of on The Lovely Lo Down? I’ve also come up with some pretty great week night mock-tails too! Incorporating a “signature cocktail” into any event that you’re hosting is a simple way to take it to the next level and make it feel extra special. Having a fun and stylish barware set is key to making it easy to implement every time. I love the Courtly Check Mackenzie-Childs set because it’s stylish and fun but neutral enough to go with any theme and it looks great on any wet bar or bar cart. My strawberry margarita recipe is below and I’ve linked some of my favorite MacKenzie-Childs glassware and barware for you too!
