To Candy the Limes:
Cut the lime into thin slices.
Add the white sugar and water to a pot, boil until sugar is dissolved and mixture starts to gain a
syrup like texture.
Shut the heat off, remove the pan from the burner and add the limes. Stir to coat with the syrup and let them sit for about 5-6 minutes.
Remove the limes from the syrup, place on wax paper and sprinkle with sugar. Let cool completely.
Refrigerate the lime syrup from the pan for the sorbet.
For the Sorbet:
Add the strawberries, orange juice, small piece of lime rind, 1/4 cup of cold lime syrup, and tequila (if using) into a blender or smoothie maker.
Blend until smooth.
Spoon into a stainless steel bowl and freeze for at least 1 hour.
Scoop into a sugar rimmed margarita glass or dish, and garnish with candied limes.
