By request, I am sharing the recipe for DIY or Homemade Tequila Rose. For those not familiar, Tequila Rose is a strawberry cream liquor and is YUMMY. After my DIY Bailey’s article, I was asked by a friend to share the recipe for Tequila Rose. So, Jen, this is for you. I hope to share some soon!!
1st I will share the ingredients:
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup heavy cream(I used 18%)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup strawberry syrup(the kind you add to milk)
- 1/2 cup tequila (your preference)
Now for the directions….this is crazy complicated…..teehee
- Dump it all in a blender and mix till blended…DONE! Must be refrigerated with a 2 week expiration. Shake or stir before consuming.
I just mixed up a batch this afternoon. Bill just happened to come home when I was pouring tequila in the blender. His reaction was priceless, “Tough Day Dear”?. Trying to explain that I was creating this recipe for my blog…well of course I had to sample it :-).
You will want to keep in mind that you can make a lighter version of this recipe but for this article I wanted to make the real thing.
I have never tried to mix Tequila Rose with anything so I looked into it and WOW. There are so many great ideas both to drink and eat. Here are a few ideas.
