Strawberry Sriracha Margarita

I’m not much of a hard liquor drinker. That was something I inadvertently gave up when I became a mom, along with sleeping past 7am, peeing alone, and buying anything for myself without feeling selfish. It’s worth the price of admission, this tequila free/up at dawn/spectated toilet runs/"why am I buying this for myself when I could be buying something for my kid," life that I live as a person who grew another human in her guts.

Because she’s really amazing.

(Me & Tater in the healing waters of Santa Barbara a few days ago)

So I drink beer (the good stuff) or wine (the cheap stuff) unless you tell me that there is a cocktail on the menu that’s spicy. I love a nice hot cocktail. Lately, jalapenos have been popping into drinks all over the country and I couldn’t be happier about it.

My undying love for the Rooster Sauce put the idea for a red hot cocktail in my head a few months ago. And adding strawberries gave the perfect balance. Be careful, alcohol intensifies heat so start with a small amount (this recipe calls for only 1/2 tsp) and then decide if you want to add a bit more.

If you love Sriracha as much as I do, I would suggest you add The Sriracha Cookbook to your culinary library, or follow Randy Clemens blog, The Sriracha Cookbook Blog.

 

Maple & Bourbon Beer Glazed Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ponzu sauce
  • 3/4 cup bourbon barrel aged beer
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbs lime juice (about 1 large lime, juiced)
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 4 to 6 oz each)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, add all ingredients (other than the salmon) stir until well combined. Add to a large zip top freezer bag. Add the salmon and remove as much air as possible before sealing. Place in the fridge, allowing to marinate for one to two hours, rotating at least once.
  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. Remove the salmon from the bag and place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Place the marinade in a pot over medium high heat. Boil until reduced and thickened, stirring frequently, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Brush the salmon with the marinade glaze.
  6. Place under broiler and cook until salmon flakes easily, about 6 minutes. Brush salmon with glaze several times during cooking.
  7. Serve over rice or pasta.

I literally just found out about the Sriracha cookbook this weekend. And it’s so perfect, I adore the stuff. And I don’t really do hard liquor either, not for the exact reasons as you, just because it knocks me on the floor before I know it. But a margarita I will always fall for. Make it spicy and I’m doomed. I adore this Jackie!

Ha! Cassie! Yes you did… thanks to your dynamite Sriracha-Soy and Sesame Almond recipe! It’s a small little world we live in sometimes, isn’t it?

And Jackie, thank youuuuuu for the shout-out. You know this is going up on the blog and Pinterest board like, first thing tomorrow AM, right?! Oh, and if you’re ever in the mood for extra spice, you can always rim the glass with a nice coating of Sriracha Salt! Super-easy to make: http://braisedanatomy.com/2011/12/25/sriracha-salt/

Cheers, and Viva la Sriracha!

Thanks! I’ve pretty much lived in that dress all summer, because of the afore mentioned issue with buying things for myself when Tater clothes are just so dang cute. Her wardrobe is twice the size of mine!

Haha! I was laughing out loud when you mentioned you gave up peeing alone…And I thought I was the only one. Perchance it is an initiation thing, that goes with motherhood, call it multitasking or curing a separation anxiety syndrome of a toddler, I am glad, I am not alone 😉
i am sure I am not the only one finding this margarita hard to resist. This is a must try! Thanks for sharing!\

Sriracha makes everything taste better, doesn’t it? Not that a strawberry margarita needs much help tasting better, but you know what I mean. 🙂

This is brilliance beyond brilliance. And I’m pretty sure Ben would freak out if I brought him a pitcher of these. Freak out in a good way. He loves the Rooster Sauce. Except he joking refers to rooster sauce by another name for Rooster that starts with c and ends in k. My future husband is perpetually 15 and giggles every time… *rolls eyes*

This drink is AMAZING. so bomb. I added a bit of fresh red chilli and blended it into the drink to enhance the spiciness a bit more without the sriracha overpowering the strawberry taste. Amazing amazing combo. Thank you for coming up with this! (:
