Muddled Strawberry Lemon Agave Margarita

Sharon Palmer

There’s nothing like a hand-crafted margarita. You can skip all of those sugar-sweet, fake margarita mixes, and make up your own with a few whole ingredients. In my version of Muddled Strawberry Lemon Agave Margarita, I include just 4 ingredients: fresh strawberries and lemons, agave syrup, and silver tequila—oh and ice cubes. That’s it. When you muddle the strawberries, you leave some of that delicious texture of the strawberries intact.

This recipe is ideal for featuring fresh strawberries when they are in season. Plus, it’s just so pretty served in a mason jar! I used a cinnamon sugar rim on my margarita glasses, but this is an optional step. Make up a pitcher of these fruit drinks at your next party. Cheers!

Step-by-Step Guide:

All this recipe takes is agave syrup, silver tequila, fresh strawberries, and fresh lemons.
Place 1 cup sliced strawberries in a pitcher or cocktail shaker.
Use a muddler to mash the strawberries in the pitcher or shaker until they are mashed, but not liquified. Add 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice to the container.
Add ¼ cup agave nectar to the container.
Add ½ cup silver tequila to the container.
Add a few ice cubes to the container, cover it and shake or stir well.
If desired, rim the glasses with cinnamon sugar. Run the surface of a sliced lemon along the edge of the glass, and dip in a dish of cinnamon sugar. Let dry for a few minutes.
Fill the glasses with ice and pour the margaritas into each glass. Enjoy! Note, this makes two large servings (about 1 1/4 cups per serving) or four small servings (about 2/3 cup per serving).
