Sip it :: Tangerine Margarita

Tangerine Margarita

I’ve been on a mission to come up with new flavorful margaritas and although yesterday it was all about the spice of this jalapeno margarita, today we’re getting just a touch of sweet with this tangerine margarita.

The juice of a honey tangerine is complemented so well with freshly grated ginger that the whole thing just screams “I’m so refreshing, drink me!”

Serve It :: Pistachio Gelato

pistachio ice cream recipeI have this love, love relationship with my ice cream maker. It’s super simple to use, allows me to whip up batches of deliciousness (in 30 minutes!), and makes me look like I have culinary guns. Oh and the best part is when I get to give it away and make someone’s day. Okay, it’s pretty good when I keep it for myself to (if I’m being honest).

Sip It :: Jalapeno Lemon Martini

 

Jalapeno Martini

 

It’s spring, which means the Mr. and I have gotten dirty replanting our garden. We have a pepper box that never fails to produce WAY more jalapenos than we can consume. We eat them raw, stuffed, chopped, pickled and baked into bread. It was only a matter of time before we figured out how to drink them too.

disclaimer: you shouldn’t drink this if you don’t like a little heat

 The first step is to infuse your vodka (this will take about 10 minutes).

Once your vodka is infused, it’s as simple as shaking it over ice!
