Scale

Ingredients

2 strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 kiwi, peeled
1 lime, juiced
2 ounces tequila, preferably reposado
1 ounce orange liqueur, preferably Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1 ounce simple syrup, homemade or store-bought
Ice
Lime slices, for garnish, optional
Coarse sea salt, for garnish, optional
Strawberries, for garnish, optional
Kiwi slices, for garnish, optional


Instructions

  1. In a cocktail shaker, add the strawberries, kiwi and lime juice. Muddle until the fruit breaks down and is mostly liquified.
  2. Add the tequila, orange liqueur, simple syrup and a handful of ice. Put the cocktail shaker top on and shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds.
  3. If desired, run a lime slice along the rim of your serving glass. Pour coarse sea salt onto a small plate and swirl the moistened rim in the salt. Add ice to the serving glass.
  4. Replace the cocktail shaker top with a cocktail strainer. Strain into ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lime slice, strawberry and kiwi slice if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If making your own simple syrup, add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring often to dissolve the sugar. Allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for several weeks.
