I received this package from Foodbuzz. What a perfect way to get a party off on the right foot. Thanks Foodbuzz!
I was very inspired with these two new cocktail flavors from Smirnoff. Tuscan Lemonade and Mojito. All of our guests enjoyed them both. It was hard for me to pick a favorite. The inspirational flavor or key ingredient was lime. I carried these citrus flavors into the food served. Watch!
The chips and salsa went down really smooth with this!
We marinated shrimp in lime juice, garlic, a touch of olive oil and a sprinkle of cayenne and grilled them on medium-high heat.
Jennifer and Joyce, our neighbors loved the shrimp.
How about some Roasted Corn with Lime Crostini? I'll have the recipe for you this week. This was a party favorite. Anyway, who said not to try new recipes when you're entertaining?
Here's our host and grill master, A.J. He really liked the Mojito.
Even a rainbow showed up for a Tuscan Lemonade! Yes, they are just that good!
Doesn't this Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce look fantastic? The secret ingredient in the marinade and in the sauce is lime. I'll post the recipe this week!
We had a split vote here. A.J. liked the Mojito and Kent likes the Tuscan Lemonade. Actually Kent and A.J. liked them both.
Grilled Salmon with Mango, Key Lime Salsa was gone in a flash.
I couldn't have a party with lime as my key ingredient with out serving my favorite Nellie and Sal's Key Lime Pie.
How do you celebrate the end of summer?
