Notes about Recipes in this book

  • The ultimate strawberry margarita (Bartender's recipe)

    • Bloominanglophile on July 09, 2016

      This is quite nice, with the Aperol adding a different twist of flavor to what can sometimes be a flat-tasting margarita. Since I was trying to use up some strawberries that I had already sliced and macerated with some sugar, I just added more sugar to taste in the puree. I assume that the total amount wasn't as much as what was recommended in the recipe.

  • Jamaica-prickly pear (cactus fruit) margarita (Pitcher recipe for a party)

    • peaceoutdesign on August 18, 2019

      Good but expensive due to prickly pear puree. Might work better if you could find fresh and make your own puree. You could definitely taste the hibiscus in the tequila.

  • Smoky spiced cashews

    • peaceoutdesign on April 27, 2022

      These are easy to caramelize because they are baked rather than stirred on the stove top to coat. When they just came out of the oven, I added a bit granulated sugar to give a crunchier coating. Change the seasoning up for a little variety.

  • Green chile "pickled" chayote

    • mjes on May 03, 2021

      A simple quick chayote pickle with lime, jalapenos, and rice vinegar. I went light on the jalapenos as all other ingredients are mild. While simply typical of a well balanced quick pickle, this is well worth repeating as a surprising pickle element.
