Another easy way to incorporate fruits in your cocktail is by the way of infusion—infusion just means soaking an ingredient in another and letting the flavours extract. Strawberries have great floral sweetness and take really well to infusion, especially for a premium quality tequila. A little bit of agave syrup to add sweetness but not too much, and paired with a fruit-infused salt is the perfect start to a ‘pretend it’s summer' cocktail.
