By Request

If Life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But if Life gives you strawberries, make strawberry margaritas! 

This recipe is for my friend, Paul, by request. He asked for it after he read about it here. It's a gloriously warm and sunny day today. Kind of perfect for a strawberry margarita.

I picked up a basket of these cute little strawberries at the farmer's market this morning. I was going to eat them but then decided that I'd rather drink them. 

Happy weekend, y'all!

Strawberry Margarita
Recipe by my neighbor, Chris

4 strawberries, hulled
2 Tbsp agave syrup (not triple sec!)
1/4 cup tequila blanco (definitely use agave!)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Lime wedge for garnish

Muddle strawberries with agave syrup in a cocktail shaker until berries are slightly crushed and juices are released. Add tequila and lime juice to the cocktail shaker; fill with ice and shake well. Strain into prepared glass and garnish with lime slice. Sip and smile. 
Note: This recipe makes one glass. And while a made-to-order margarita is superior, let's be honest. You should just make a big batch of these and then sit outside and sip these for a few hours.
