Agarita berries can be difficult to harvest, but their deliciously tart flavor is hard to resist. (For tips on the harvesting process, visit my blog at www.wildedibletexas.com.) I harvested the agaritas for this recipe in late April, and I only had about a cup left in my freezer—just enough to eke out about a cup of juice. Since we had to ration the agarita juice at the tasting, I mixed individual mrgarita glasses following this recipe.
