Five Star Cocktail: The Strawberry Margarita

Maame by Jessica George might just be THE contemporary fiction novel of the year. Okay, March might be too soon to call it, but this book will certainly make it to many reader’s favorite lists this year. 

Maame was the February 2023 Read with Jenna pick and a February Book of the Month selection. It took no time for the rave reviews to begin rolling in and for me to get a serious case of FOMO. I downloaded the audiobook and into the story I dove. 

I loved it! Today, I’m sharing a five star cocktail to celebrate this magnificent book. No doubt, Maame will continue to be a popular pick for book clubs everywhere in the coming months. 

I wanted to create a large batch drink, perfect for serving at book club gatherings that allowed for minimal work on the hostess! 

Enter, the Strawberry Margarita

Before I go into the recipe and directions for preparing the drink, check out my review of Maame here. You can order it and all of my other favorites from the Books list in my Amazon Storefront!

I began this Five Star Cocktail journey last year as a creative way to honor my five star reads, the books that made the biggest impact on me. Through these videos and blog posts, I also strive to showcase that you don’t need to be a mixologist to craft delicious cocktails at home! My goal, with each drink I share, is attainability without compromising flavor!
