If your only experience with tequila is in a shot glass with salt and a lime wedge, you’re missing out. Fresh agave tequila mixed with ripe strawberry and raspberry, balanced with a hint of lime, creates a refreshing drink. Even if you’re not a tequila fan, cocktails with tequila can change your mind.
1 oz. Sauza Silver Tequila
1/2 oz. Triple Sec Liqueur
1 ripe strawberry
2 lime wedges
Lime wheel fruit flag garnish
Cut a large strawberry in half and place in a glass along with a raspberry and lime wedges. Muddle until all ingredients have been pressed.
Add ice, pour in Sauza Tequila and Triple Sec. Shake to mix and strain into a glass with new ice.
Garnish with a fruit flag.
To make a fruit flag, cut a lime slice and place a cherry in the middle. Pin together with a cocktail pick.
When using fresh fruits it is important to make sure they are ripe and full of flavour. If you happen to buy fruit that isn’t juicy, you may need to add more to achieve the same flavour profile.
