The "go-to" drink for customers at Dish, a swanky, modern Dallas nightspot, this margarita features a combination of sweet strawberry and fresh basil, "which cuts the bite from the Tequila just a bit," says Trevor Landry. Serve it with a half sugar rim or go with the classic salted rim.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
