Feb. 27 is National Strawberry Day. So take a little time out of your day to observe this little-known holiday and make a fruity, tropical cocktail to celebrate the strawberry!

Strawberry Margarita 
Aside from the classic lime margarita, strawberry is probably the next most popular. In honor of National Strawberry Day, make sure you make this treat with extra strawberries. Here's what you'll need: 

Pour 3 3/4 ounces of gold tequila in your party machine's blender jar with 8 1/4 ounces of strawberry daiquiri mix and a 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries for extra texture. Fill the ice hopper and then let your machine do the rest. Once it's blended you have a perfect cocktail. Pour into margarita glasses and garnish each cup with several fresh strawberries. 

This recipe makes three margaritas, so be ready to share. This recipe makes three margaritas, so be ready to share.

Strawberry Daiquiri 
This frozen favorite is the perfect way to transport yourself to a tropical oasis without ever leaving your home. Get your home bar ready to dish out daiquiris with: 

  • White rum
  • Triple sec
  • Limes
  • Strawberry schnapps
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Sugar
  • Ice

Start off by loading up the ice compartment in your frozen concoction maker. Next, add 3 ounces of white rum, 2 ounces triple sec, 1 ounce strawberry schnapps, 2 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice and sugar to taste. Turn it on and let the machine do all the work. Serve in hurricane glasses with lime and strawberry garnishes as well as a paper umbrella or two. 

Strawberry Mojito 
Add a strawberry twist to this summer staple for a fuller, sweeter flavor. Start by muddling 2 or 3 cut strawberries into the bottom of a glass with mint. Then act like you're making a typical mojito by combining 2 parts white rum with 1 part simple syrup, 1 part lime juice, 1 part club soda and plenty of ice. Garnish with more strawberries and mint and serve.
