9780688168261: The El Paso Chile Company Margarita Cookbook

Margarita--the drink that's a party in a glass! Whip up an icy batch of America's favorite cocktail, spike the salsa with some tequila, too, and you're well on your way to a really good time, down-by-the-border-style. Now all you need is the perfect margarita, and happily, you've come to the right place. W. Park Kerr from the El Paso Chile Company brings you a hot 'n' cool collection of Margaritas and other tequila-boosted recipes for every taste and every lively occasion. Let the fiesta begin!

As fearless and creative at the bar as he is in the kitchen, W. Park Kerr knows there's more than one way to shake a margarita. In this book he tells the (tall) tale of the original margarita; introduces Margarita 101 for those just getting started; then boldly goes where few other cantinamasters have, offering Passion-Peach Margaritas, Frozen Watermelon Margaritas, and Pineapple Margaritas, to name but a few. If you like your tequila straight, follow his lead and add the zests of a few oranges, lemons, and limes to a bottle of your favorite brand. Let it steep for two days, then sip it icy cold from the freezer. ¡Excellente!

Review:

Fun and inebriation abound between the covers of The El Paso Chile Company Margarita Cookbook. Running out of things to do with tequila? W. Park Kerr, founder of the El Paso Chile Company, offers dozens of drink (and a few food) recipes, each containing at least a little of the fiery elixir. From the Kentucky Club Margarita (the one we all know and love) to fancy margaritas containing Cointreau, Midori, and Curaçao, Kerr serves up drink ideas in an intoxicating Texas vernacular. Margarita 1 to 1 to 1--a blend of equal parts tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice--is touted as being tasty and easy to remember. "Although," Kerr warns, "if you're having memory problems, a cup of coffee might be the wiser choice." Any cocktail party worth its salt has snacks too, and a dozen or so tequila-imbued tapas and salsas are represented here. Try Grilled Chicken Tortas with Charred Tomato Salsa Borracho (which Kerr recommends eating outside, "at a table you can hose off afterward") for a delicious, if messy, accompaniment to your favorite distilled Mexican spirit. Spicy, alcoholic, and festive, The Margarita Cookbook is just the book to get your fiesta started. Cleaning up, unfortunately, is up to you. --David Kalil
