Husband and I recently got our fill of small Mexican plates and cocktails last week at Tico (sure to be packed today). While I was quite taken with the blood orange margarita, I happen to know where a better one can be found. Mi Casa! My husband, trader by day, personal bartender by night. He hath perfected the blood orange margarita and I am willing to share his secrets in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
Perfect dish to nosh along with a cocktail? Fresh guacamole, obviously. I had no idea how simple it was to make until a few years ago, and now, I can't imagine a summer week with out it, or my margaritas for that matter- the madame likes her Patron. Here is a quick, delicious recipe for guacamole. Feel free to take liberties with this basic version- add garlic, corn, hot or chipotle peppers for heat, maybe some cumin, hard to go wrong and easy to make your own! And here, is the link from my previous St. Germain infused margarita recipe post from last summer, just add the juice of one fresh blood orange for a fresh and tasty update.
What are your plans to celebrate this festive holiday?
