Celebrate National Tequila Day and Spring and Summer with this amazing Strawberry Margarita Pie that is delicious and super easy to make!
National Tequila Day is today! Hooray, its about as close to Christmas in the summer as you can get! To celebrate, I have a great Strawberry Margarita Pie recipe today which I featured on WCIU You and Me This Morning today (you can watch the video HERE)
The best part of this recipe is the simplicity. It doesn’t take a lot of time to make, has very simple steps, is absolutely gorgeous, and did I mention that it has tequila in it? And not just any tequila but Casa Noble, an ultra premium organic tequila.
I found this recipe on Epicurious when I was searching for something to make to celebrate my summer Christmas holiday, and I am so glad I made this! The strawberry flavor is so lovely but the tequila really stands out in the best way.
I think I found my new favorite barbecue dessert recipe. I am sure that all of my friends will be quite thankful for a slice of this Strawberry Margarita Pie, and a bit tipsy too!
