Corzo Holly

Corzo Holly

Strawberry, basil, lime, and balsamic vinegar – no, you’re not reading a salad recipe! Along with tequila, this makes a Corzo Holly: a luscious, super-fresh cocktail from the Corzo tequila company.

The balsamic vinegar is the true star of the show here, uniting the fruity and herbal flavors and offering a backbone of rich acidity.

Corzo, of course, recommends their own reposado tequila. We won’t tattle if you use another brand, or even a blanco or joven tequila.

Ingredients

Instructions

Quarter the strawberries and muddle them with the basil and vinegar in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
