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!
Add sugar and water and bring to a boil. Once sugar has dissolved remove from heat and seep jalapeño and cilantro for 10 minutes.
Add 1/4 cup simple syrup to 1/4 cup of tequila. Shake and mix.
