Poteet is the “Strawberry Capitol of Texas,” and the annual Strawberry Festival draws thousands of fans of the red fruit to this small town each April. This cocktail can be made entirely of Texas ingredients. For a Texas-style kick, muddle a piece of fresh jalapeño with the strawberries.
- 1 1/2 oz Tito’s Vodka
- 3/4 oz Paula’s Texas Lemon or other lemoncello
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
- 3 ripe strawberries
In the bottom of a mixing glass, muddle strawberries and simple syrup. Add vodka, Paula’s Texas Lemon, lime juice and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve over ice in a small rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a fresh strawberry.
