Grilled Corn with Tequila Lime Butter

100 Ways to Cook with Tequila

Ahhh, tequila, Mexico’s miracle elixir. This mysterious potion has the ability to both enhance and ruin lives. Often in the same 24-hour period.

There is no better time to celebrate the wonders of tequila than mid-spring, that festive portion of the year when Cinco De Mayo comes to call!  Cinco is the ideal excuse for a night of debauchery. However if you, like me, crave a year-round  “south of the border” journey for your tastebuds without the shame spiral and permanent liver damage, these tequila-based recipes are just what the doctor ordered! That and some anti-cirrhosis pills. (Do they make those? They should. I’ll look into this for everyone. You’re welcome.) Ole!

    Thanks for the link to our Moogarita cocktail. I think its ingredients – tequila, ginger-lime syrup, tamarind, beef stock and a stick of jalapeno-lime beef jerky to garnish – are perfect flavours for Cinqo de Mayo.
