A little something for the weekend..

Tequila Lemonade by Chuck

I’m so annoyed right now. My favourite Cooking Channel chef and personality, Chuck Hughes, is but a couple miles away from me doing a promo ice cream event with the public and my day and week has been so snowed under I cannot go. Of ALL weekends to do this Cooking Channel you pick the ONE when I am going away! grr.

Hopefully there will be other opportunities. In the meantime Maybe you can enjoy the Tequila Lemonade recipe from the show ‘Chuck’s day off’. It uses Meyer Lemons and I am simply dying to take a crack at it! The recipe can be found here, but I am posting it below for your reference.

Tequila Lemonade on Chuck’s Day off

Ingredients

* Ice cubes, (about 2 cups)
* 8 Meyer lemons
* Dash sugar cane syrup or simple syrup
* 4 sprigs fresh peppermint, leaves torn
* 1 lemon, sliced into wheels
* 4 ounces Tequila

* Dash of soda water or seltzer
* 2 vanilla beans, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Into a pitcher, put about 2 scoops of ice cubes. Squeeze in the juice of 8 Meyer lemons or 8 regular lemons in a pinch! Add several dashes of sugar cane syrup. Add the leaves of 2 fresh mint sprigs, torn into pieces. Add a few lemon wheels for garnish. Add 4 ounces of Tequila and give it a stir. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

When serving, put the ice in tall glasses, and pour the Tequila Lemonade over the top. Top up with a splash of fizzy soda water. Garnish each glass with a wheel of lemon, a vanilla bean, a sprig of mint, and a paper umbrella.

Thats’ it! Have a good weekend everyone – I will be away next week but never fear – I have a few guest writers who have submitted some great foodie based articles for you to read on this here blog next week!!
