I Don’t Always Cook With Tequila (a Collection of Tequila Baking Recipes)
I don’t always cook with tequila but when I do, the angels sing. No, it’s true.
Well, most of the time.
Anyone who knows me knows I love to create in the kitchen so mixing it up with tequila just seems right. Occasionally I’ll have a batch of something I’ll need to throw away, but it doesn’t happen very often. Here are a few examples of some of the cooking I’ve done right in my Tequila Aficionado Test Kitchen.
I love gazpacho but most recipes call for pureed vegetables. I don’t care so much for a vegetable mush – I prefer fresh chunky vegetables. When I had the opportunity to taste this award winning Bloody Mary mix from Spruce Creek, I knew it would be perfect as a gazpacho base!
De La Tierre is comfort food in a bottle for a Franco-American like me! I love baking with it.
The ultimate chocolate truffles – try the maple cinnamon ones I made with De La Tierre too!
This cake was rich with chocolate and coffee flavors and absolutely spectacular with the Avion Espresso soaked in.
Peligroso Cinnamon is so well done that it goes well in nearly every holiday pie!
These were so surprisingly light and fluffy and melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
This was a lighter, crumb cake version of the pound cake and went great with my morning coffee!
Hornito’s Lime Shot is a horrible drink, but I recommend everyone have a bottle in their kitchen as a last minute marinade. This made some epic chicken!
Avion Espresso, ladyfingers, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream – what’s not to love?
I never make pumpkin pie any other way now.
These were so tasty! The strawberry margarita flavor was great and topping each with a chocolate pearl made for a lovely presentation.
Cranberries & apples love this spirit!
Oh, yes. La Crema has all good flavors in it and the cinnamon, white chocolate and caramel flavors dress up any plain cake to make a special occasion dessert.
Light flavors of maple, cinnamon and white chocolate made for a decadent gift at Christmas.
