Welcome to Episode 50: Reverse Poltergeist! This very special episode was recorded live on Twitch. As such, the dishes interact with the chat quite a bit. The dishes talk the history of Cinco de Mayo and get pretty pickled (especially Melissa).
The featured drink this episode is the Classic Margarita.
2 oz. Tequila 1 oz. Cointreau 1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice Optional: ¼-½ oz. (or up to your taste level) Simple Syrup Optional: Margarita salt for the rim of the glass
Run lime wedge around the outer rims of 2 rocks glasses and dip rims in salt. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice (and simple syrup if using). Fill with ice and shake until thoroughly chilled, about 15 seconds (the bottom of a metal shaker should frost over).
Fill glass with fresh ice and strain margarita into it.
This episode’s recipe is Mexicali Chicken from Betty Crocker’s Box.
