Strawberry Foam Margarita
Galaxy Gas Nitrous Infused Recipes
Think about drinking, and it is natural to think about margaritas. Sometimes we love drinking these girly drinks because of their rich taste. We have created a new version of strawberry margarita using our Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser and named it Galaxy Gas Nitrous Recipe – Strawberry Foam Margarita. Margarita is something you will serve in a cocktail glass. We have given a twist in the recipe to create a more dramatic drink. By adding the strawberry foam, and a strong flavored Cointreau (you can use any other strong flavored liquor of your choice), you will add a spark to this margarita. We also added Blue Curacao to make the drink appear as a pink concoction with a blue base. So much contrast in a glass is amazing! Don’t forget to serve this drink with a swizzle stick so that your guests can mix the flavors according to their palate.
- Fresh strawberries – 1.5 pounds
Cointreau – 3 – 4 tablespoon
Sugar – 1/4th cup
Blue Curacao – 1 teaspoon
Crushed ice cubes – 2 cups
Tequila – 2/3 cups
Lime juice – ½ cups
Salt – 1 pinch
- Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser - 1
- Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Charger - 2
- Wash the strawberries and remove their stems.
- Mash them and add sugar.
- Now take a saucepan, add strawberries and cook them on low heat until they take a thick, gelatinous form.
- Cool this mixture and strain it.
- Add the Cointreau and Blue Curacao to change the color of the mixture dramatically.
- Now divide this mixture into two portions.
- Pour the first portion in your Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser.
- Now charge with two Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Chargers while shaking throughout in between.
- Remove the charger, secure the lid in its place and refrigerate for few hours.
- It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. Apart from this drink, you can also use this foam for topping up your desserts.
- Take a blender and place ice cubes in it. Add lime juice, tequila and a pinch of salt.
- Now add the remaining half portion of the strawberry puree, which you didn’t pour into the Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser.
- Blend this mixture thoroughly.
- Refrigerate the cocktail glasses for fifteen minutes, then rub a lime on the rim of each glass and coat with salt or sugar (as per your taste)
- First of all, dispense a generous amount of strawberry foam in the base of the glass. Then pour the blended strawberry-tequila mixture in the glass to fill up to the rim. Lastly, garnish with a slice of lime.
Mistakes that can ruin your margarita:
Does your margarita not taste its best? You may be making some mistakes in making a margarita.
Don’t use a cheap orange liqueur:
As recommended in the recipe, use the original Cointreau instead of trying any cheap orange liqueur or triple sec. It will give you a well-balanced margarita. Also, high-quality Blanco tequila is essential. If you use cheaper ones, you won’t be able to enjoy a delicious glass of Margarita.
Don’t use bottled lime juice:
It is better to use fresh lime juice instead of that packaged in plastic bottles. Fresh ingredients taste better and give the best results when used in a Margarita.
Don’t overuse salt:
Do you dip the whole rim of the glass in salt when pouring a Margarita? Here you are making a mistake that may affect the taste of your Margarita. If you salt only half of the rim, then your guests will be able to taste the Margarita with and without salt.
What is Blue Curacao, and why is it used?
Blue Curacao has a stunning deep blue color. It comes in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions. Curacao is added to cocktails and drinks to add attractive color and exotic aroma.
The blue in Curacao comes from a dye and appears stunning, making your cocktails look appealing to the drinkers.
The refreshing citrus flavor of Curacao complements the natural fruit purees of seasonal fruits added to the cocktails. The taste of Blue Curacao is mildly bitter and mildly sweet, and it is somewhat comparable to Triple Sec, which is another citrus-flavored liqueur.
Is it necessary to use Cointreau in this recipe?
We consider Cointreau as the best brand that produces triple sec style citrus liqueur. The drink was introduced in 1875. It was manufactured by combining bitter and sweet orange peels along with beet sugar alcohol. The process yields a liqueur that has a smooth, crisp, orange flavor and aroma.
You can also directly drink Cointreau or add it to your Margarita to flavor it up. It has 40% ABV. According to our experience, using any cheap orange liqueur will not give the best result in this recipe.
