  • Author: trippingvittles


Celebrating both Cinco de Mayo and Whiskey Wednesday  with this drinkable White Lightning Strawberry Margarita.


  • 1 Tablespoon of Macerated Strawberries
  • Sprig of fresh Mint
  • 1 1/4 oz White Bourbon I am using Makers Mark White
  • 1 1/4 oz Orange Liqueur my preferred Liqueur is Gran Gala but Grand Marnier is acceptable and if you are in a pinch Triple Sec will work
  • 2 oz Fresh Sweet and Sour Mix
  • Ice



  1. quarter 5-6 berries coat with sugar and let sit till they are juicy


  2. In the bottom of a rocks glass add the strawberries and mint Muddle , once muddled fill glass half way ice
  3. In a Cocktail Shaker add the white bourbon, orange liqueur, sweet and sour mix and ice,
  4. Shake to blend,  pour into rocks glass give a stir to mix up the berries and mint
  5. serve


You can macerate almost any berry or fruit so play around with it. if you use blackberries or Raspberries mush them a little to get the sugar and juices working together.
