Happy Friday lovebugs,
Here are my favorite recipes this week!

Citrus Margarita Spritzer
c/o Skinnytaste
  • 1 oz clear tequila
  • 1/2 oz Contreau (or Grand Marnier)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 lime (2 tbsp) fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup seltzer/club soda
  • crushed ice

Combine the tequila, orange liquor, fresh squeezed orange juice, and fresh squeezed lime juice. Pour into a glass with crushed ice and top with seltzer.

Mexican Street Corn Nachos
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups corn, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup cream, half and half or milk
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

  • 1/4 cup cotija or feta, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons crema or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • cayenne to taste
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

  1. Melt the butter in a heavy bottomed pan over medium high heat, add the corn and let it sit until it starts to char a bit, mix it up and let it start to char a bit again before removing from heat and mixing in the mayo.
  2. Mix the cornstarch into the cream, bring just to a simmer, reduce the heat and mix in the cheese until it melts.
  3. Place the nachos on a serving dish, pour on the cheese, top with the corn, cotija, creme, cilantro and cayenne and hit everything with a few squirts of lime juice!
