9) Strawberry Margarita

1.5 oz. Corralejo Reposado Tequila
.5 oz lime
Two large strawberries hulled, halved, and macerated in Cointreau overnight

In a lowball glass muddle the strawberries then fill the glass with ice. In a shaker add the Tequila and lime juice. Shake well then strain into the glass. Garnish with a strawberry.

Remember last week when I said we were going to have two cocktails for you? Yeah, those were good times. It turns out that what I meant to say was that I was going to put it off until this week.

This was an easy one that was an easy one that came about from an idea I had a while ago which was macerating strawberries in Cointreau and using them for, well, something. We finally got around to the macerating, and when it came time to make the drink both Ed and I pretty much immediately thought Margarita. The strawberries had absorbed just enough Cointreau to keep us from having to add any, and the strawberries added an nice rounding out of the Tequila deliciousness.
