Getting Sloppy with Some Strawberry Sunshine
It always happens. Everytime. Never fails.
You meet up with your best ladle-friend and you start out strong being all like, “Oh, just one margarita. Just one! I mean, they’re so good but they’re $12!” But the sun is hitting the buildings just right, and the tequila starts to work its magic and before you know it you’re three drinks deep, and have finished off about 3 bowls of chips and a whole molcajete of guacamole. And you’re now out $60. And starving. And pretty drunk.
Every time. It happens everytime.
But not any more gurl! Because you’ve got some nice tequila, a whole batch of strawberries and some limes. You are good to go on your own terf.
(I found this recipe online but now can’t. I’m doing my best to re-create from memory.)
2 oz silver tequila
1 oz water
2 big tablespoons of muddled strawberries
1 tablespoon simple syrup
.5 oz lime juice
Hull 4-5 strawberries. (AMAZINGLY simple trick for hulling strawberries in this video. Game changer.) Muddle the strawberries in cocktail shaker. Add tequila, simple syrup, lime juice and water. Shake vigorously and pour all contents into glass. Add extra ice cubes if necessary. Garnish with strawberry and lime.
