Our inspiration for Sunday Supper today is a music-inspired recipe.

As I sat there sipping my newest seasonal creation – a Strawberry Tequila – it struck me, like a d’oh forehead bonk: “Strawberry Fields Forever,” by the Beatles.

A classic song deserves its own cocktail, don’t you think?

(And if you like this one, you should also try my Strawberry-Infused Vodka. Oh yeah, I got all the teachers at my son’s elementary school hooked on that!)

Recipe: Strawberry Tequila

Summary: A wonderfully fresh tasting strawberry-flavored tequila to drink neat or over ice. Make as little or as much of this as you dare.


  • Fresh California strawberries
  • Tequila (decent quality!)


  1. Strawberry Tequila on Shockinlgy DeliciousWash, dry and remove stems from strawberries. Halve them and put them into a lidded container or pitcher. Cover strawberries with tequila and allow to steep for 4-7 days. The strawberries will relinquish their color and flavor to the tequila.
  2. When ready to use, strain, discard berries (which will appear nearly white), and drink the Strawberry Tequila “neat,” over crushed ice, or use it in a mixed cocktail – perhaps with a splash of Cointreau and lime juice.
  3. How much does it make? As much as you want! How about starting with a basket of strawberries, and seeing if you enjoy it; then make more!
