Mango Sunrise Margaritas

Mango Sunrise Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #CincoDeMayo #Cocktail #recipe

This Mango Sunrise Margarita is a light, sparkly cocktail with fruity mango and a little tingle from club soda, lime, and the tiny hint of chipotle both on the rim and in the drink. The splash of grenadine adds a bit of sweet and a festive sunrise effect in the bottom of the glass. It’s […]


Frozen Banana Mango Margaritas

Frozen Banana Mango Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tropical #margarita #recipe

It was Mother’s Day weekend. My sister and I were heading up to Mom and Dad’s place to celebrate with Mom. I stopped at the greenhouse to get mom some new flowers to plant in her garden … and decided to bring along some margarita fixin’s, because my sis (like me!) loves a good margarita and […]


Rosemary Rhubarb Margarita

Rosemary Rhubarb Margaritas with Smoky Spicy Sweet Rim ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #margarita #rhubarb #cocktail #recipe

with a smoky sweet & spicy rim It’s 8 am on a Saturday morning and I’m posting a margarita recipe. If my friend Russ gets wind of this, I’ll never hear the end of it. I made these margaritas yesterday afternoon for a cooking class celebrating Cinco de Mayo (a little late, but it’s always […]


Frozen Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita

Frozen Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #cocktail #spicy #margarita #recipe

Green smoothie, meet cocktail. I’ve been dying to try cucumber jalapeno margaritas for a long time … or at least it seems like a long time. Perhaps it’s not really all that long. I mean what’s a couple years in the scheme of things? But they’ve intrigued me since the moment I heard of them. […]


Watermelon Mint & Feta Salad

Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #refreshing #summer #salad #recipe

with Chicken, Bee Balm & a Honey Lime Margarita Vinaigrette I like to garden, but most of my property is forest, so there isn’t much light for gardening. I have a little pond on the edge of the forest with a waterfall. Years ago I planted a bee balm next to the pond. I heard […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cocktail #recipe

There are lots of contrasting flavors in this margarita.  Strawberries, rhubarb, lime and tequila … it’s a match made in heaven, right? I just couldn’t help myself. After my daughter used up all the first batch of Strawberry Rhubarb Simple Syrup on her Italian cream sodas, I just HAD to make another batch so I […]


Blueberry Mexican Mule

Blueberry Mexican Mule ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #blueberry #ginger #tequila #cocktail #recipe

I hear the latest craze in cocktails is the Moscow Mule. It’s served in a cute little copper mug and has become so “hip” that some of the bars have started taking a deposit if you order one (to reduce the number of copper mugs disappearing!) I didn’t really know any of this until my […]


Blueberry Pineapple Tequila Sunrise

Blueberry Pineapple Tequila Sunrise ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tequila #cocktail #recipe

I still have some blueberry pineapple tequila left after making that blueberry pineapple margarita … so then the question became … what ELSE can I make with blueberry pineapple tequila? The first thing that came to mind was a tequila sunrise. Grenadine didn’t seem like the right thing to use with blueberry pineapple tequila, so […]


Blueberry Pineapple Margarita

Blueberry Pineapple Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #margarita #cocktail #recipe

Sometimes at work we like to go to Chili’s for lunch. One time we were there, I noticed these blueberry pineapple margaritas on the menu … oh I wanted to try one! … but since we were there for lunch, I had to refrain. So I put it on my list of things I must make. […]


Yellow Watermelon Kumquat Margaritas

Kumquat Watermelon Margaritas

Happy National Margarita Day! I went to my fridge to make a classic lime margarita and discovered I had NO limes, but still a few kumquats … hmm … kumquats are kinda like limes. They’re tart but also sweet … I bet they would be good in a margarita. And the watermelon? I know, it’s […]


Kiwi & Chicken Salad with Feta, Basil, & Mixed Greens

Kiwi Chicken Salad with Feta, Basil, and Mixed Greens

with Tequila Lime Vinaigrette Do you see the kiwi in there? It’s a master at hide-and-seek … Yesterday I walked into my kitchen looking for some lunch … I am trying to eat up that big tub of herb organic salad mix my mom and dad got for me, so I thought I’d make a salad. […]


Basil Watermelon Salad with Chicken, Blue Cheese & Toasted Pecans

Basil Watermelon Salad with Chicken, Blue Cheese, and Toasted Pecans

and a Tequila Lime vinaigrette I know it’s getting close to Christmas and everyone is baking cookies and such, but if you can find some watermelon (or if you miraculously happen to have a bit sitting about still from the bounty of the summer garden, like me), make this sublime salad and, just for a […]

Basil-Lime Pesto

My new basil plant!

To me, basil has got to be one of the best herbs on the planet. I just love the intense rich and spicy, peppery flavor of it, with a hint of clove and mint. I keep basil in pots so I can enjoy it year round, and they keep me supplied with fresh basil for salads, […]
