Uniting Fire and Ice

Remember that jalapeno brown sugar syrup from a previous post?  I created a third cocktail with this syrup, this time in honor of our wedding anniversary today, October 30th (Devil’s Night!).  

Fire With Ice Margarita

1 ½ oz tequila
½ oz Cointreau
1 oz lime juice
½ oz jalapeno brown sugar syrup

I like my margaritas on the rocks, so I filled a glass with ice, added the ingredients and stirred well. Nice to cool the jalapeno fire with ice.

Heat Miser!

Incidentally, “Fire and Ice” is the name of our maybe-someday-in-the-future boat. Fire because hubby is a redhead and, of course, I’m ICE.  We used that idea for Halloween costumes a few years back, going as the HeatMiser and SnowMiser from The Year Without a Santa Claus. I’m too embarrassed to post a picture of us, but be assured there were cocktails involved that night, too.


Happy Anniversary, Fire!

Cheers, ICE

P.S.: I saw this on a forum:” If loving Halloween is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.” Yes!

Snow Miser!

    “If loving Halloween is wrong, I don’t wanna be right” — gawd that’s so you!

    I can’t wait for a Halloween cocktail cruise on the “Fire and Ice.” Keep me posted!

    Happy Anniversary and hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend.
