Tasty Tuesdays: numero ocho

For those of you that don't habla espanol, this is officially the 8th edition of Tasty Tuesdays comin' at ya in full force.

Today's recipe du jour (I'm feeling trilingual) is a cocktail concoction of sorts and was actually featured in a previous post. While I typically stick to wine and champagne, I do occasionally choose to imbibe in a margarita (or two). And if you're going to do a margarita, you might as well do it right. This recipe is just the ticket for your next Mexican fiesta and will not disappoint.

Margarita sunrise


the juice of 2 large limes
1 part orange liqueur
2 parts tequila
2 parts orange juice
1 T of powdered sugar

Combine all of the contents in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and pour into a chilled glass. And try to resist the urge to kick this back in several large gulps. Savor the flavor and make sure you have supplies to whip up a few extra. You'll be glad you did!

Now tell me, have you tried any of these recipes? Have you experienced the phenomenom of a watering mouth while perusing anyo of the recipes? Have you at least been inspired to whip up come creations of your own in the kitchen? Please comment and let me know. I'd love to hear of your culinary adventures!
