I recently had the opportunity to compete on a food truck competition show. No, I cannot say what show but if you put two and two together and come up with five you will know what show I am referring to. The biggest point is that I left home for over a month and was unable to post, test or taste new recipes for my readers. So the moment I arrived home guess what I did? I made a drink because after a month of filming and cooking daily I really needed one.
Living in Idaho for the last 15 years has really brought to me an influx of tastes, flavors and recipes that I didn’t really get to taste prior to living in Idaho. Mexican cuisine is supreme around Idaho and you are not going to get any complaints from me. So, I wanted to combine those tastes and flavors into a drink. I love heat. I mean I really love heat… not the heat that is just there to be heat but the heat that compliments the food you are serving.
This drink is the Frank-n-Slides margarita because after being on a food truck for over a month filming and filming and then filming I really needed a drink or four. This drink is the refreshing adult beverage you need after a hard day of cooking. To top it off, you have to try our Habanero Mango Rub on the rim. That added spice makes it amazing!
Frank-n-Slides Jalapeño Margarita
