Strawberry Margarita with a “Buzz Button”, The Eberhard – Dallas

Patron Reposado, O3 Liqueur, simple syrup, lime juice and muddled strawberries come together creating a delicious, fruity margarita. But don’t let the simplicity of this cocktail fool you.

This margarita features a sechuan button, commonly referred to as a “buzz button” – the little garnish above the strawberry. This is a button that is added as a garnish on the drink that alters and awakens your taste buds. The Eberhard is the first bar in Dallas to feature the sechuan button with a cocktail.

The instructions are: Eat the button, except for the stem, before taking a sip of the drink for an exciting flavor experience.
