Drink DuJour : The Fragolita

by Natasha Wolff | May 10, 2013 12:00 am

“The Fragolita—fragole means strawberry in Italian—is our take on a strawberry margarita,” says Keith Nelson, beverage director at LAVO[1], the perennially popular restaurant and nightclub in midtown Manhattan. “We use Don Julio Reposado Tequila[2], fresh strawberries, guava nectar and fresh lime juice.”

Indeed, the drink is one of many on LAVO’s new warm-weather cocktail list. And it’s not a moment too soon.

“What can be more spring than a strawberry margarita,” Nelson asks. “It’s crisp, fruity and delicious.”

How to make a Fragolita:

1 1/2 oz. Don Julio Reposado
1 oz. sour mix
1/2 oz. strawberry puree
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1 muddled strawberry

Shake all ingredients together and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry.
