Jalapeno Mezcal Shooters And A Dia De Los Muertos Free E-Book

Ofrendas

If you follow my feed here on Babble then you know I am going full steam ahead with my Dia De Los Muertos creations and celebrations. Day of the dead (Dia De Los Muertos) is a celebration that combines traditional foods, flowers, spirits, sweets and skeletons. This year I joined a collaborative of amazing women to create this Dia De Los Muertos free e-book called “Ofrendas,” which means offerings. I submitted 3 recipes, one being the jalapeno mezcal shooters featured below. I was so honored to collaborate with some of the most talented ladies in the blog-o-sphere:  Kathy Cano-Murillo, Maura Hernandez, Denise Cortes, Ericka Sanchez, Vianney Rodriguez, and Leslie Limon on this lovely e-book. Click here to view our free downloadable e-book for crafts and recipes to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos! Keep an eye out for the other recipes I created in the e-book…. Skull sugar cookies, and mazapanes de pepitas!

  4. Dip the jalapeno into the lime juice, then dip it into the tajin for a perfectly tajin rimmed jalapeno.
  5. Place the jalapenos in a holder to make them stand upright. OR place each jalapeno in a shot glass to hold it in place.
  6. In a big glass with a spout (measuring glass is ideal) mix lemonade, mezcal, and cilantro.
  7. Evenly pour liquid mixture into each jalapeno!
