Strawberry Margarita Punch is the perfect cocktail to make for a crowd! We make this fun cocktail every summer and I cannot get enough! Make it kid-friendly by leaving out the tequila.
Strawberry Margarita Punch
The week I made several crockpot recipes in an attempt to prepare for one of the most exciting times of the year, TAILGATE SEASON!! I made Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, Skinny Parmesan Spinach Dip, and BBQ Chicken Dip. Those are all great, but mean very little if you don’t have a fantastic cocktail to serve with them.
This Strawberry Margarita Punch is just the thing! The mixture of strawberry, limeade, orange juice, tequila, and more creates the most delicious flavor combo. It’s fun for any and every party, plus it’s easy to make a kid-friendly version without the alcohol.
We made an updated version of this recipe with champagne for a sparkling punch recipe! Find the Strawberry Limeade Margarita Punch here.
Why you’ll love this Strawberry Margarita Punch:
- Serves a crowd: The great thing about punch is that you can mix it up by the pitcher full!
- A crowd-favorite flavor: Everyone loves the fruity blend of strawberry and orange.
- A touch of fizz: A little strawberry soda really livens it up.
- Agave nectar
- Orange juice
- Strawberry soda
- Tequila (or leave it out for a non-alcoholic version)
I just loved how the strawberry soda adds a touch of fizz to this perfect punch. This is for sure one of my favorite drinks I’ve made so far–I can’t believe I have lived this long into adulthood without knowing this recipe. And that’s saying something!
How to Make Margarita Punch
Margarita Punch is SO easy to make. I love whipping this up for parties throughout the summer, for autumn tailgate parties, or even for holidays. With something this delicious, there’s never a bad time to make it.
- Pulse chopped strawberries and water until smooth in a food processor.
- Pour that strawberry mixture into a large pitcher and add limeade, orange juice, soda, agave nectar, tequila, and the remaining 3 cups of water. Stir, stir, stir!
- Serve over ice, garnished with strawberries and limes. Salt the rim of your glasses for an added margarita flair.
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
Can You Make This Sugar Free?
Margarita Punch is easy to make sugar free. Use sugar-free strawberry soda, and swap out liquid stevia for the agave nectar. Use granulated stevia or Splenda for the white sugar, and if you check the nutrition labels in the store, you should be able to find limeade concentrate that is sweetened with fruit juices.
Keep in mind, though, that sometimes nothing beats the real thing. Artificial sweeteners are close, but not exactly as delicious as regular sugar. But, that’s your call to make!
Can You Save Leftovers?
The soda won’t save very well–it will go flat. So, if you think you may have leftovers, don’t add the soda to the whole pitcher of Margarita Punch.
Instead, fill each glass 1/3 full of soda as you serve it. That way, you can do the same with any leftovers the next day. But I have to say, we rarely deal with leftovers when we serve this drink!
Can You Use Frozen Strawberries in Margarita Punch?
You sure can, and if you’re serving it in the winter (Super Bowl party, anyone?), that may be the only way you can pull it off. You can use frozen, sweetened strawberries and skip the added 1/4 cup of sugar, or use unsweetened berries and proceed as the recipe directs.
Frozen strawberries aren’t quite as scrumptious as fresh, in-season berries, so you may want to add a touch more sweetener.
I took way too many pictures of this new favorite cocktail, but I just thought it was so pretty. And the taste of this Strawberry Margarita Punch is even better! This is my kind of punch! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
