 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

How Sweet It Is, from Yummly, shared this sweet drink by adding strawberries and coconut water. It looks festive and great for any time of the day.

Ingredients

  • 2 Ounces grand marnier
  • 1 1/2 Ounce ozs tequila (silver)
  • 2 Ounces lime juice
  • 2 Ounces coconut water
  • 2 Ounces cream (de coconut)
  • 2 1/2 Ounces syrup
  • lime for garnish
  • strawberry for garnish
  • salt for the rim
  • sugar for the rim
  • toasted finely shredded coconut for the rim

Directions

Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of margarita salt + sugar + toasted coconut [I used about 3 tablespoons salt to 2 teaspoons sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons toasted coconut].

Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, simple syrup, coconut water, cream de coconut and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 60 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lime slices and add a few strawberries.

A slight bit of separation may occur from the cream de coconut, so shake well!

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

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.
