Some recipes for you.....

I have for a while now been researching (honest!) recipes for the best Margarita. Having recently taken to cooking Mexican food, this is the perfect liquid accompaniment....

Juice of 2 Limes
3 Measures Tequila (White, not that Gold shit that addles your brain faster than anything!)
1 Measure Cointreau or Triple Sec
2 Teaspoons castor sugar
Pint of ice cubes

Place everything into a blender & blitz for about a minute. Pour into suitable Margarita glasses (yes, plural as it does serve 2!!!) I don't bother with the salt round the rim of the glass crap.

Update : Whilst chatting the other day to my good friend & fellow alcohol connoisseur Aled Roberts, he commented that you can also add a shot of Midori Melon Liqueur to this recipe to make it a "Midori Margarita" - well done Aled, have a banana & make it a taste of a different fruit.

I have also taken the glut of cheap English strawberries & made several of these wonderful Strawberry Daiquiri's....

1 Punnet of Strawberries (I put mine through a juicer to get rid of the seeds, but if you don't have one pass them through a fine sieve)
Juice of 1/2 Lime
2 teaspoons Castor Sugar
3 Measures Bacardi White Rum
Dash of Strawberry Liqueur (if you have some, if not use Cointreau)
Pint of Ice Cubes

Yet again, place everything into a blender & blitz for about a minute. It serves 2 again.

Enjoy (in moderation is best, as one too many can hurt later!)
