- Amor Prohibido -

 

Amor Prohibido is basically a strawberry margarita but with a cool name. It’s a thick red cocktail featuring seasonal strawberries two different ways—infused in tequila and as a puree. The Amor Prohibido is made in a way where the alcohol is not the star of the drink, but an accent. The strawberry also adds a beautiful color, which makes it a visual treat as well.  If you can’t find Miel de Agave (traditionally made agave nectar), just use a strong simple syrup or corn syrup. Items that are labeled “agave” syrup are nothing more than high fructose corn syrup with a latin sounding name.
