Fresh strawberry season is one of the best times of the year in Marietta! Acres of strawberry fields run along the banks of the Muskingum River, and nothing beats the smell and taste of the ripe berries. It tells us all that summer is almost here!! While they’re in-season I always figure out new ways to enjoy them. Here’s my latest favorite:
Tequila Strawberry Smash
- 2 oz blanco tequila
- 1-2 oz coconut water
- ½ oz fresh lime juice
- 3-4 fresh strawberries
- 1 slice of jalapeño pepper (optional)
Muddle the strawberries in the bottom of an old-fashioned/rocks glass. Add ice, tequila and lime juice, then top if off with coconut water. Stir well, and garnish with a lime wedge and jalapeño slice. Cheers!
