25, El Borracho
(25, The Drunkard)
It's been really hot outside! Enjoy my recipes.
The Block Party
1/2 package frozen Parcha/Maracuya/Passion Fruit
1/2 package frozen Mango
1 cup orange juice
few tablespoons sugar
blend. enjoy. vegetate.
1 package frozen Mora/Blackberries
1 cup cranberry juice
handful fresh berries if available
equal parts Kentucky Bourbon, Benedictine, Aguardiente
blend. enjoy. laugh.
The Perfect Salsa
2 very ripe Mexican mangoes (the big green and red ones)
2 to 5 fresh serrano chiles, depending on size
5 small limes
Peel the mangoes; cut the flesh away from the pits into small bits, toss in a bowl. Dice the chiles. Juice the limes. Add a little seasalt if desired. Let sit in the fridge an hour for the flavors to blend.
Sweet, picante, refreshing; it looks like shiny fresh egg yolks. Delicious on chips or meat or tacos while you're enjoying your cocktails.
The best way to juice limes without a juicer: cut a thin slice off the top and bottom end. Make three vertical cuts down the length of the lime, leaving a thin triangular core of flesh with no skin in the center. All 6 pieces, squeezed by hand, will yield more juice this way.
