Strawberry, rhubarb, and a hint of tarragon, paired with tequila, a little lemon juice and simple syrup, create a juicy cocktail that nicely balances sweet and tart.

Note: Simple syrup can be made by heating 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup can be stored in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
