Strawberry on rim
How to make:
MUDDLE strawberries in base of shaker. Add other ingredients, SHAKE with ice and fine strain into chilled glass. You may find that the strawberry pulp blocks your fine strainer, so have a spoon handy to help clear the mesh to let the liquid run through.

Fresh strawberries combine well with tequila in this fruity margarita. The strawberry already makes this drink viscous so sugar syrup is preferable to agave syrup and blanco tequila freshens more than reposado tequila, although both are fine substitutions.
