This is a gorgeous, bright-red slush highlighted with the aroma of citrus herbs. I buy fresh, local berries when they are in season — wash, core and slice them — and freeze one-cup quantities in zip-close freezer bags so that I am always prepared. You could try this with frozen melon chunks, too.

  • 8 to 12 lime- or lemon-scented geranium leaves
  • 1 cup limeade
  • 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup good-quality tequila
  • ¼ cup triple sec
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  1. Muddle scented geranium leaves in a pitcher and add limeade. Set aside. Put frozen strawberries, tequila and triple sec into a blender.
  2. Strain limeade into blender and blend for 10 seconds. Add ice and blend until frozen and smooth. Pour into frosted margarita glasses and serve immediately with a straw, garnished with a scented geranium leaf, if desired.
