Strawberry Pecan MARGARITA

Strong female characters

With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Almodo has always been consistent with his memorable, outspoken, and nuanced female leads.


This margarita starts with a pecan simple syrup.  Texas pecans simmered in water and brown sugar to extract all their goodness. What you end up is a rich, earthy syrup that pairs perfectly with fresh strawberry juice.



Run a lime/lemon wedge around glass, rim with salt. Set aside until ready to use.


To a shaker filled with ice add tequila, strawberry juice and pecan simple syrup. Shake; serve over ice.


For pecan simple syrup:  Bring water, brown sugar and pecans to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until all sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Allow to cool and use to make margaritas.
