Recipe and Image from Paul Abercrombie’s book, Organic, Shaken and Stirred: Hip Highballs, Modern Martinis and Other Totally Green Cocktails
- 2 organic strawberries, hulled
- 4 slivers peeled and seeded organic jalapeno chile
- 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
- 1 1/2 ounces organic reposado tequila
- 1/2 ounce organic agave nectar
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries, 3 of the jalapeno slivers, and lemon until well mashed. Add the tequila and agave nectar, and fill the shaker with ice cubes. Shake vigorously, then strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the remaining jalapeno sliver.
Of course, you can always use non-organic ingredients, if you prefer.
