With the herbal taste of Hornitos ® Tequila Reposado, plus honey, orange leaves, serrano pepper and its juices, this drink enhances the pepper's flavors with a slight bitter touch and accentuated notes of fruits and flowers. It is a delicious and fresh cocktail.
The name is also a game of words, since although "fresa" literally means "strawberry", it is also commonly used to make reference to a snobby person so, the cocktail is probably referring indirectly to a snobby person from the ranch, where one usually finds hard-working people, rather than "fresitas". "Fresita de rancho" thus, is a rare thing to find, if you know what we mean.
