A Summer Cocktail: Muddle Puddle Battle

So as I mentioned yesterday, I attempted to make a layered cake over the weekend. A layered chocolate cake that is. One of Ina Garten's chocolate cakes that is. I opened the oven door to see if they were done. They were not. About five minutes later, I go to check on them again only to see that they had fallen. I could almost hear my grandmother yelling, "I told you not to open that door!!" She was serious about her cakes.

But things happen for a reason. If it weren't for that disaster, I wouldn't have wanted a cocktail which means that I would have missed out on discovering the perfect summer drink. This drink is from Deb Perelman's cookbook, "The Smitten Kitchen." Do you have her cookbook yet? If not, get it. It's good. Really, really good. This fruity cocktail is in the very back of the book. It's really refreshing with a little twang of tequila and black pepper. Yep, black pepper. I was skeptical, but it compliments the tartness of the lime and the sweetness of the fruit. It's the perfect little summer drink... :)

Here is what you need and what to do:

  1. I am dying to get her cookbook. Your photos look amazing friend! And so do the drinks:) x

  2. I must try this cocktail. Your photos are always beautiful! When you bake just turn the oven light on to see how things are doing. That's what I do when I bake.

  3. Looks like the perfect summer drink.

  4. We need some sunshine in my neck of the woods! Just waiting for those scrumptious drinks. I shall look for that book for sure!

  5. Wow...this looks DELISH!! Your photos never fail to make me swoon!

  6. Looks good, but I would leave out the tequila since I don't drink.
