Spring Break, Sammy-style!
Last week was a crazy spring break - from Cabo to Miami to Alabama to New Orleans!
Things started out down in Cabo - hopped up on stage and jammed w/ Cabo Uno and Sammy's Baja Salt Mine is back up and running for the best margarita ever! My salt is only for the cantina to give away (ask for it in Cabo only!). Check out my recipe for the world's great margarita:
1oz fresh Tahitian lime juice
1 1/2 to 2oz Cabo Blanco or Reposado
1/2 tsp agave nectar or good raw sugar/ simple syrup- all works fine
Put in shaker over med size ice cubes. Not crushed (crushed ice is too watered down).
Shake the hell out of it.
Run rim of small martini glass with left over lime and dip in flaky sea salt (mine if in cabo- ha!)- not too much.
Shake again pour into glass and forget the garnish.
Drink it before it warms up (reason for smaller glass).
After Cabo I flew to Miami for meeting with rum distributors, then on to Florida fishing with Emeril for rest of the week, then over to Orange, Alabama for my buddy Kenny Chesney's show - hopped on stage and played with Kenny songs from the 4 decades show - did 55, finish what a started, and rock candy which Grace Potter also joined us on. Really magic!
From Alabama it was back to Florida for more fishing and eating with Emeril (check out the photos- yum!) and then Saturday night George Straights last show in New Orleans with Emeril who finished me off and put me on the plane couch for home. whew! R we having any fun yet?
