Combine pretzel crumbs and butter; firmly press on bottom and 1-1/2 inches up sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake at 325ºF for 8 to 10 minutes; set crust aside. Place strawberries in container of electric blender; process until smooth, stopping once to scrape down sides. Reserve 1/2 cup puree.


Beat cream cheese at medium speed with electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in lime juice, tequila and liqueur. Pour into prepared
