Tastee Sips: Margaritas

Courtesy of Chow.com

You probably won’t see me posting many cocktail recipes, and if you do, the alcohol content will be heavily disguised by other fancy, fruity ingredients. I prefer to eat my calories. That said, I’m a sucker for margaritas. Love, love, love them. I usually just blend tequila with a simple pre-made margarita mix, but that laziness is about to change! I’m thinking I need to try each of these margarita recipes. Starting with the  Red-Chile Guava Margarita and Mango Margarita, I’ll let you know the winner!

Red-Chile Guava Margarita

INGREDIENTS
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine tequila, Triple Sec, guava nectar, orange juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and reserve in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. To serve, rim a rocks glass with salt by rubbing a lime wedge around the outside and then dipping the glass in salt. Fill the glass with ice, add the margarita mixture, and garnish with a skewered chile pepper (if using).

Grill It: Cobbed Corn Showdown!

Corn with Chili Lime Butter v. Grilled Corn with Lime, Cayenne and Cotija

Joshua Bousel posted this simple, yet amazing sounding grilled chili lime butter corn recipe over at SeriousEats. The fact that this recipe combines two of my my favorite ingredients – butter and chili powder – lands it top on my “to try” list. It’s hard to improve on grilled corn, but this flavor combo seems like it might be a keeper.

After salavating over Bousel’s dish, I came across the second grilled corn option with Lime, Cayenne and Cotija posted at Chow.com. While both recipes feature lime, I’m curious which one would win in a grilled corn throwdown. I’m leaning towards the cotija, because cheese just makes everything better. But its hard to beat simple buttered corn. Time to test both and pick a winner!
