In This Recipe


  1. Using a cocktail glass rimmer, rim the edge of two clear glasses with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of salt + sugar [equal parts].
  2. In a blender, combine tequila, grand marnier, thyme, ice, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds.
  3. For strawberry simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely. Combine 1 cup simple syrup + 1-1/2 cups slices strawberries in a blender and blend until combined. If you like a seedless drink, strain the mixture over a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Pour into glasses and garnish with sliced strawberries and a wedge of lime.
