Strawberry Tequila

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?

Strawberry Tequila on Shockingly DeliciousHere, then, at the height of the California strawberry season, when the fruit just can’t get any redder or any sweeter, I present Strawberry Tequila.

(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!)

The Beatles and Strawberry Fields Forever on Shockingly Delicious

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!

Done and done! I know what I’m doing with the next batch of strawberries we get!

It’s so pretty! I’m not usually much for booze, but I am all for strawberry booze!

Oh lordy… just what I needed – another vice! Wow, that looks delicious. If you see a breaking news story about some poor confused inebriated woman rolling around on her front lawn and trying to box passing cars, you’ll know I gave this a try. 😀

You cracked me up!


DB-The Foodie Stuntman @ Crazy Foodie Stunts August 5, 2013 at 10:09 am

Yep. I could see this being used in a strawberry margarita. A classic Beatles song, BTW. My favorite has always been Ticket to Ride

I have several infusions going right now. Including peach and mint. But the red glow from strawberry is far more vibrant than anything I have going. GREG


Paula @ Vintage Kitchen Notes August 4, 2013 at 4:30 pm

Such gorgeous color, and so easy to make…and drink Dorothy!


Sarah Reid, RHNC (@jo_jo_ba) August 4, 2013 at 11:54 am

Oooh, this is would be great in a hard limeade I think!

So many people make infused vodkas but I’ve never seen it done with tequila before. Great idea!


TheUrbanMrs August 4, 2013 at 8:52 am

I’m so in love with the color and this looks soooo gorgeous!


Dorothy Reinhold August 5, 2013 at 4:20 am

Urban Mrs.,
Me too! The color is so appealing!


Nicole @ Daily Dish Recipes August 4, 2013 at 8:43 am

Oh my goodness, strawberry and tequila. What a combo! This sounds fabulous, and I love infused drinks!


Tara August 4, 2013 at 8:33 am

Great idea, I love infused liquors!! I have done vodka lots but not tequila!


Heather @girlichef August 4, 2013 at 8:13 am

For some reason, I have never infused tequila!? Fantastic idea…and on my to-try-soon list now.

And ummm…elementary school teachers hooked on vodka, hey? ;P


Liz August 4, 2013 at 7:54 am

Thank you for all the nice recipes.


Megan @ I Run For Wine August 4, 2013 at 6:58 am

Wow this is such a great idea! I make infused vodka a lot but never thought of infusing tequila. Awesome!


Dorothy Reinhold August 4, 2013 at 7:50 am

Yeah, I sort of slapped myself upside the head!


Renee August 4, 2013 at 6:49 am

I believe this could turn me into a tequila drinker. Love the color too.


Dorothy Reinhold August 4, 2013 at 7:50 am

Oh yes, it could!


susan August 4, 2013 at 6:17 am

I know some tequila lovers that would love this. I bet it would also be great in a mixed drink.


Dorothy Reinhold August 4, 2013 at 7:50 am

You’re right! Try it in a margarita!


Liz August 4, 2013 at 6:13 am

Just GORGEOUS, Dorothy!!! Perfect start to some amazing cocktails 🙂


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers August 4, 2013 at 5:28 am

Ohhh, looks so good!!! When I asked my Husband what songs are about food he picked the Beetles Strawberry Fields. 🙂


Dorothy Reinhold August 4, 2013 at 7:51 am

Great minds are thinking alike!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips August 4, 2013 at 5:27 am

Oh yum, I think some strawberry lime margaritas would be fabulous!


Dorothy Reinhold August 4, 2013 at 7:51 am

I like the way you think!
