2 cups water
1 cup sugar
4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled OR 20-oz bag frozen whole strawberries, thawed
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup tequila
1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur
Fresh mint sprigs for garnish
Bring water and sugar to boil in a medium saucepan over high heat; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool completely.
Puree strawberries in blender or food processor until smooth. Stir in lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur and sugar syrup. Refrigerate until cold.
Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. If you do not have an ice-cream freezer, pour the mixture into a 13 x 9-inch pan and freeze until almost solid, about 5 hours, stirring with a whisk every 1 1/2 hours. Refreeze.
