Today we’re chatting about booze and barbecue. Take that however you want: cooking with liquor, pairing drinks with barbecued goods, drinking while grilling… We suggest that last one takes place in moderation; otherwise, you’ll be rocking some pretty bad-ass grill marks. On your face. Who knows, though. That might just be the next trend, so maybe don’t write it off entirely.
On that note, here we’ve got a recipe for Tequila-Lime Chicken Wings, and it’s best if you enjoy a margarita (or two, see fashion tip, above) while prepping them.
To make the perfect margarita, pour two ounces good-quality blanco tequila, one ounce Cointreau or Triple Sec, and one ounce of fresh lime juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, and strain into a salt-rimmed glass.
If you’re heading to a barbecue where someone else will be cooking for you, first, get them to invite us, too, and second, don’t forget to bring a cooler full of booze along with you. It’s the only way to guarantee you’ll be invited back.
We looovvveee the combination of barbecue and booze so we've put together a few suggestions for the perfect booze-barbecue foods match making.
