- 1.5 ounces Spice Note Cumin Tequila
- 2 ounces strawberry lemonade*
- 0.75 ounce ginger beer
Place Spice Note Cumin Tequila and strawberry lemonade into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass filled with fresh ice. Slowly add the ginger beer. Serve with a straw. If desired, garnish with a fresh strawberry and candied ginger.
For parties or picnics, the tequila and lemonade may be batched together in advance and then topped with ginger beer at the time of service.
* Strawberry Lemonade Recipe
If using a premade strawberry puree, Strawberry Puree from The Perfect Puree of Napa Valley is what we recommend. Combine equal parts fresh lemon juice, simple syrup* and Strawberry Puree.
If making your own strawberry puree, place 6-8 medium sized, de-stemmed strawberries, one cup of fresh lemon juice and one cup of simple syrup** into a blender and blend thoroughly. Pass the blended strawberry lemonade mixture through a large sieve, pushing it through with a wooden spoon, removing all of the strawberry seeds and collecting the seedless strawberry lemonade liquid once it has passed through the sieve.
** Simple Syrup Recipe
Dissolve one part sugar into two parts water in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and let cool. Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.
