We’ve tested many, many margarita and cocktail recipes that use jalapeño to add heat, so when I saw this Strawberry Sriracha Margarita recipe, I thought that would be a perfect combination of sweet and heat.
And with the all-season availability of strawberries, this margarita can be in your glass whenever the mood strikes.
Fresh strawberries. A hint of heat from the sriracha. A dollop of sweet from the agave. It comes together to create quite a refreshing margarita.

This is another get-it-in-your-glass-quickly margarita that quenches your thirst no matter the time of year.
The fresh strawberries bring a hint of summer. The sriracha provides some warmth when the weather turns cooler.
And the hardest part of making this margarita? Chopping the strawberries.
So, if you can chop strawberries, you can make this margarita!
Four things to know about the Strawberry Sriracha Margarita recipe:
- This cocktail is in your hand in 5-10 minutes. The most difficult part of this drink is chopping the strawberries. Then it’s just blend, shake and pour. Viola!
- I substituted freshly-squeezed orange juice for the Cointreau. I’m not a fan of Contreau or any other orange-flavored liqueur, so I typically make this substitution. Plus, I think it adds a level of brightness which is nice, especially during the long, winter months. Try it both ways and see which one you prefer.
- The recipe calls for a sugar rim, but you can substitute salt if you prefer. The sugar works well with the strawberries, but honestly, not everyone wants that added sweetness. If you’re more of a salt person, use salt.
- If you don’t have agave, you can substitute simple syrup* or honey. If you’re really feeling adventurous, swap out the agave for maple syrup. Strawberries. Maple syrup. A whole new level of yum.
*Simple Syrup: Combine equal parts (typically 1C each) sugar and water in a saucepan and bring it just to a boil. The sugar should be fully dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using. You can store simple syrup in an air tight container for 3-4 weeks.
