On that appetizing note, here is a delicious beverage recipe to toast St. Martina while we await the land of milk and honey:
1 lime wedge
2 ounces anejo tequila
1/4 ounce Cointreau or other orange liqueur.
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 ounce honey
1/4 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce pineapple juice
1 thin jalapeno slice
Salt the rim of a cocktail glass. Add tequila, Contreau, lime juice, honey, simple syrup, pineapple juice and jalapeno in shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Pour into glass. Garnish with lime wedge.
