In a rage, the minotaur tossed aside the worn table. Thaxus was less than thrilled about his spilled milk, but he should have know by now to never go out in public with Adem at this point. Nostrils flaring the minotaur stomped his hooves before looking Adem squarely in the eye and spat, “Those are not the limes of Keys.”
I never turn down an opportunity to show off some baking, so when my friends had a summer barbecue I knew I had to make a new recipe. Originally these were intended to be keylime cupcakes, but keylimes are far too small and far too much work when it comes to juicing and zesting, so instead I went with regular limes. If you want to make use of the soon-to-be de-zested limes, I have to suggest making a pitcher of Margaritas using my simple (and bonus) recipe:
8 ounces of tequila
4 ounces of simple syrup
2 ounces of triple sec
Juice the fruits, it should yield around 12 ounces of liquid. Combine with 8 ounces of tequila, four ounces of simple syrup and two ounces of triple sec. Either blend in a blender or shake together and serve on the rocks. Garnish your glass with a salt rim if you like, but please use something better than Morton’s.
To make your own simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water and bring to a boil. Once the mixture has reduced by a third to half, remove from heat and allow it to cool. Don’t ever bother buying the stuff.
Now on to the cupcakes!Read More
