Cinco de Mayo: Mexican Flag recipe

Mexican Flag Drinks

So, in case our horchata recipe wasn’t strong enough for you, we’ve got something with a little more kick for your Cinco de Mayo party. Usually if I’m imbibing tequila, it’s in margarita form and I am just fine with that. But the Mexican Flag is consistently great just as it is.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of tequila
  • the juice of 2 1/2 limes
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Green seedless grapes
  • Banana

Preparation:
Dissolve the sugar into the lime juice and then mix with the tequila. Pour over ice and garnish with a cherry, a grape and a slice of banana.

Next up in our series, a trio of tasty toppings for tortillas. Okay, really it’s three dip recipes, but I love alliteration.

Huski Beverage Chiller

For those of us who like to nurse our brews, but not after they turn room temperature, we cannot wait for this prototype to come on the market. Invented by 22 year-old Kent Hodgson, the Huski Beverage Chiller can ice up your beer in a few seconds with CO2 and costs about 7 cents apiece. At about the size of a pencil, it forgoes the need to pre-chill drinks or carry around extra ice. It works with plastic cooling cells in a dock that houses the carbon dioxide that expands and becomes dry ice. Hodgson is hoping that his dream will become about a $50.00 realty in time.

Self-Chilling Coca-Cola bottlesDon’t your taste buds hate it when you open a soda…and it becomes warm after leaving the top off for awhile? Well the folks at Coca-Cola have heard your cries. It’s about to intro a new bottle with technology that keeps your soda cold, even with the top off. No more ice, which means no more watered down soda. Cool. What’s interesting is that the self-chilling bottles will have to be stored at a certain temperature, which means Coke will have to dispatch new vending machines specifically for them. No word on when the guinea pig

first product, “Sprite Super Chilled,” will be available.
