Expert Tips

  • Taste your strawberries before slicing; if they’re not incredibly sweet, add more than 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • The longer you allow the strawberries to stand with the sugar and tequila, the more flavorful they will be. You can mix them the night before and refrigerate until serving.
  • Rum can be substituted for the tequila. Or, to make this a kid-friendly dessert, leave out the tequila altogether.
