One of the many pleasures found in South Texas where I live is fresh citrus, specifically limes.
This is not about baking folks.
This is about drinking.
Here are three of my favorites -in descending order of preference-
*A tall glass of iced tea on a very hot day of gardening, filled with crushed ice, iced tea , and squeezed wedges of lime -
*A homemade margarita at one of my teacher parties- fresh limes and laughter are two key ingredients-
and my favorite…
* Cerveza Vestida (dressed beer)
Here is how you do it.
Take an ice cold long neck beer.
Before you open it and after you have rinsed off the top, roll it in freshly squeezed lime juice.
Then dip the top of the beer in margarita salt.
Open the beer, place a wedge of lime in the neck of the beer and enjoy!
This is enjoyed best on my patio , at about dark-thirty, after that long day of gardening.
Play your favorite music and relax!
