Strawberry Margaritas

Cantaloupe is the secret ingredient in this fabulous margarita recipe. It adds a smoothness, richness, and slight taste of honey to this delicious drink. To make simple syrup, combine 1 part water with 2 parts sugar in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved.
