There is no denying it — you simply can’t have a Cinco de Mayo party without a whole lot of tequila.

It’s downright impossible.

However, you don’t have to rely solely on tequila to get your celebration going on Sunday (May 5.) Maybe you are the type that likes a little more fruit in your cocktail. Maybe you want a cocktail that is going to get you in the mood for the summer months ahead. Or maybe you are one of those people that just doesn’t like a cocktail unless it has some Fireball in it.

Well, have no fear.

Borrowed from our friends at, this recipe for Fireball Margaritas could just be everything you need, all wrapped up in one yummy drink. You have a blender, right? Well, grab a chair and get it out of that high cabinet you never use. You are going to need it.

Mixing a concoction of frozen strawberries and Fireball Whiskey and, of course, tequila, this cocktail is sure to get you in the Cinco de Mayo mood. And don’t forget to rim the glasses with salt…it’s more fun that way!

Fireball Margaritas:


3 c. frozen strawberries
2 c. ice
1/2 c. tequila
1/4 c. Fireball Whiskey
1/2 c. lime juice
3 tbsp. sugar


Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until thoroughly mixed. Serve in margarita glasses rimmed with salt (dip rim in water or lime juice, then dip the rim in a shallow plate covered in salt). Garnish with a lime slice or fresh strawberry.
