#050513 Cinco de Mayo Strawberry Meyer Lemon Tequila Cocktail

Happy Cinco de Mayo! What better way to celebrate than with a tequila-based craft cocktail. Here is one we put together to battle those mad margaritas out there. It is fresh, fruity, citrusy and if you use an incredible tequila like we did, super smooth.

Please let us know what you think. We are learning more and more everyday and hopefully you can also benefit from our journey.

INGREDIENTS:

2oz Corzo Tequila (We used an anejo)
1oz Squeezed Meyer Lemon Juice (If you use plain lemons you will need to add 1/2oz simple syrup)
1/2oz Luxardo Maraschino Originale
1/2oz Aperol
3 Sliced Strawberries

PREPARATION:

In a shaker, muddle strawberries, then add in the rest of the ingredients and some ice. Shake and pour into a tumbler over ice. We garnished with a Meyer lemon wedge and a strawberry.
