Strawberry Margarita

This cocktail comes out of the dim 80's when strawberry was added to any tropical drink to make it "flavored" like something other than the cocktail it was supposed to be. This was done best with muddling strawberries, but more often it happened with a Strawberry Margarita mix. Like nearly fruity drinks back then, there was a bottled mix that wouldn't spoil that could be kept behind the bar, and would basically make any booze taste sweet and disgusting.

This recipe calls for strawberry syrup, which is easy enough to make with this recipe. When you have this, make this drink like any other Margarita--with this one exception! Old school Margaritas didn't have ice cubes in them, they were not blended. So this drink is supposed to be served up.
  • 2 oz. silver tequila (Tres Agaves used)
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. strawberry syrup (homemade recipe used)
  • 1 tbsp. triple sec
  • fresh strawberry
  • coarse salt
  • lime wedge
Use a lime wedge to rim the a cocktail glass with lime juice. Dip it in a plate of coarse salt to coat the rim of the glass with salt. Combine all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into the cocktail glass and garnish with the strawberry and lime wedge.
