Strawberry Margarita Spritzer, Miss Shirley's( Kim Hairston/Baltimore Sun / March 21, 2012 )
How to Make a Strawberry Margarita Spritzer
4 oz. strawberry lemonade
3 oz. club soda
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. lime juice
Pour together; garnish with a lemon, lime and strawberries.
You may be familiar with the non-alcoholic version; it's Shirley's most popular drink. And so, as executive chef Brigitte Bledsoe noted, the early arrival of spring inspired the busy breakfast and brunch hotspot to turn it into a cocktail, "something seasonal, something you could enjoy outside on a sunny day," she said. The result is a flirtation of Miss Shirley's tamer strawberry lemonade and a margarita.
