Strawberry Margarita Pie
Turn an ordinary occasion into a fiesta when you serve this scrumptious pie! Flavored with fresh limes and strawberries, with a kick of tequila and triple sec, the sweet-tart filling is complemented by a salty pretzel crust.
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
2/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped
1 (12-ounce) container non-dairy whipped topping - divided use
Red and yellow food coloring (optional)
- For Crust: Combine crushed pretzels, butter and sugar together. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Set aside.
- For Filling: In a bowl, mix together the tequila, triple sec, condensed milk and lime. Pour half of the mixture into another bowl. Add strawberries and a few drops of red food coloring to one half. Fold in 1 cup of whipped topping.
- To the remaining half of tequila mixture, add just a drop or two of yellow food coloring and fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Spoon into crust, alternating the colors. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
