Strawberry Margarita Pie

This frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie has all the flavors of the classic cocktail, including a kick from the tequila!

Strawberry Margarita Pie

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. It was a shock to all of us and I witnessed a strength in my mother I had never seen before. After a mastectomy, intense chemotherapy and radiation therapy, she beat her cancer. Here we are nine years later and she’s still going strong.

My mom’s favorite cocktail is the frozen strawberry margarita. If we’re out for dinner and she’s drinking, it’s always a frozen strawberry margarita. When I saw this Strawberry Margarita Pie recipe, it made me think of mom. She would absolutely love this pie.

Strawberry Margarita Pie

I made this for a dinner party at our friends house. There is enough tequila in the recipe that you get the distinct margarita flavor. One of the best things about this recipe is the fact that you can make it a couple days in advance and just throw it in the freezer to hang out until you’re ready to serve it. I even threw the garnishes on prior to freezing it.

Everyone at the dinner party enjoyed this pie. My favorite part was the salty-sweet pretzel crust. It got a little crumbly when we cut slices out of the pie, but we just served the crumbly crust alongside each piece of pie.

This strawberry margarita pie is a boozy dessert that pairs well with anything you’d eat with a margarita. And if you’re my mom, that’s anything 🙂

Strawberry Margarita Pie

This frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie has all the flavors of the classic cocktail, including a kick from the tequila!

Yield: 8-10 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Ingredients:

For the Crust:
2 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar

For the Pie:
~1 pound strawberries
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup tequila
juice of 2 limes
zest of 1 lime
1 Tbsp triple sec, optional
1 cup heavy cream

Directions:

For the Crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degF. Line the bottom of a 9" springform pan with parchment.

Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Press into the pan, using the bottom of a measuring cup if necessary.

Bake for 7-8 minutes, then cool completely.

For the Pie:
In a blender, puree all of the ingredients except the heavy cream.

Whip the cream with a mixer (or by hand), and fold in to the strawberry mixture.

Add more lime juice or tequila to suit your tastes. Remember that the more alcohol you add, the less frozen the pie will get.

Pour filling in to the cooled crust and freeze for several hours or overnight.

Prior to serving, garnish with lime slices and/or strawberries.

      If you make it, let me know what beer/fruit combo you use. I can’t wait to try different combinations.

    I just made it last night and used frozen strawberries and Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat. Amazing!!! So creamy without any dairy. I’ll be posting the recipe on my site next week.

      First of all, I haven’t had that beer, but it sounds tasty on it’s own. I’m sure it was delicious with the strawberries in this sorbet. So glad you enjoyed it. Let me know when your post goes up!

      I loved it too. Even though when you say Strawberry and Beer Sorbet people kind of look at you like you’re crazy….

    This sounds awesome and I know my husband would love it but we don’t have an ice cream maker. Is there an alternative way to make it?

    I work in a brewpub in Boulder. I’m gonna try this out with fresh peaches, honey, and a strong belgian golden ale. I’ll let you know how it goes.

      Oh man – that sounds awesome. I have a TON of peaches in my house right now… I just made a blueberry variety the other night.
