1 ounce aged rum

¾ ounce lime juice

½ ounce agave syrup

¼ ounce absinthe

1 strawberry, hulled

6 ounces crushed ice

Garnish: 1 small strawberry

Shake it up: If you don’t want to break out the blender, shake all ingredients in a cocktail tin and double-strain into the glass instead.


In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with strawberry.
