At the moment I have 6 bottles of tequila in my pantry. Six glorious bottles ready to aid in my need of a Saturday margarita. The problem is only one has escaped my clutches.
The others have dwindle down to only ounces, as a result of my Saturday margarita recipes.
What’s a girl to do? Chunk the bottle, please. I would never waste a great ounce of tequila. I simply find creative ways to incorporate Tequila into my dishes.
Tequila can add a hit of flavor to any of your day to day meals. Add a splash to your roast chicken, fajitas or even steaks. What about tequila infused fruit or adding a smidge to your next sorbet. How about adding tequila instead of vinegar to your dressing.
Tequila combined with cilantro,lime and honey add a pop to your mid week salad. I enjoyed this dressing over spinach, jicama, mango and avocado.
So the next time you purchase a wonderful bottle of Tequila, try to think outside the box. Incorporate Tequila into your cooking. Enjoy!
