If you’re going to drink, keep your alcohol intake moderate: studies have shown an increase in abdominal obesity with regular overconsumption of alcoholic beverages. However, recipes like these that are relatively low in sugar are much better for you than the high-fructose corn syrup-laden versions you might find at a chain restaurant.
Spicy and sweet — a perfect blend for Valentine's.
Liam Carney-McBride brings you a Mexican twist on a Cuban classic. This recipe was originally published on bevvy.com.
I’m not much of a tequila drinker, but cooking with tequila… well let’s just say I don’t object to boozy shrimp. The alcohol actually cooks out so you won’t get intoxicated eating this, but the flavor is spot on. I also add some red pepper flakes to give the shrimp a little spice.
You can serve this over salad, brown rice, cilantro lime cauliflower “rice” or make some guacamole, heat up some corn tortillas and turn them into shrimp tacos (SO GOOD)! Any brand of tequila will work, I went with George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila just because… (wink wink). Enjoy the shrimp!!

Chef Michael Ollier showed us how to make a Tequila Lime Marinade flank steak. He starts with lime juice and adds garlic, olive oil, and tequila. Next, he put the meat in a plastic bag and added the marinade on top. After he says it best to let it sit in the fridge for 4 to 6 hours.
The chef explained that a rub is used to impart the flavor, but the marinade will help with flavor and make the meat softer. He also said seasoning before adds flavor but he usually just adds a little salt on the meal after its done cooking.
Chef Ollier only cooks with Certified Angus Beef Brand because of the marbling. Marbling is where you find all of the flavor for your meat and Certified Angus Beef Brand has just the right amount of marbling for a juicy steak.

How to Make a tequila lime mojitarita:
- Get a simple cocktail shaker (or beg or borrow one) — you don’t need a fancy one.
- If you’ve ever watched a skilled bartender in action you know there’s an art to shaking a cocktail. But still, anyone can do it and make a delicious drink. Be sure to shake vigorously to dissolve the sugar and bruise the mint for the best flavor.
- Squeeze your own fresh lime juice — please don’t even think of using bottled stuff. It’s easy to juice citrus with a handheld citrus juicer or reamer. Unfortunately, limes are notoriously inconsistent in their juiciness, but in general, count on at least one tablespoon juice per lime.
- Crushed ice is ideal for filling the shaker (some refrigerators with a dispenser give you the option).
The Best Frozen Lime Margaritas Recipe
In a hot kitchen, you can't just dump fresh lime, tequila, Cointreau, and simple syrup in a blender with ice: As you whir it, the room-temperature liquid melts the ice, so you get a cool, but not brain-freezing-frozen margarita.
The secret to real slushie-style margaritas at home (as opposed to the classic margarita on the rocks), without using corn syrup or artificial flavors, is to make your margarita base the day before and keep it in a sealed container in your freezer. The mix won't freeze, since there's so much alcohol and sugar in it, but it will drop way down in temperature: Ours clocked in at 5°F (-15°C) after an overnight rest. When the party starts, throw your ice in the blender, add your super-cold homemade margarita mix, get it whirring on "ice crush," and you're good to go. The result will be sweet-tart, boozy, and totally refreshing. You can find more recipes for fresh-fruit frozen margaritas here.
- You can make this grilled margarita chicken with boneless chicken thighs. Cooking times may vary slightly.
- Resting the chicken before serving it, allows for carryover cooking. Carryover cooking simply means that the heat will continue to move (from the surface to the interior of the meat) and the temperature will increase about 5 to 10 degrees after you remove the meat from the heat source, in this case the grill. For perfectly juicy and tender grilled chicken breast, you can remove the chicken from the grill when an instant read thermometer, inserted in the thickest part of the breast reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Tent the chicken with aluminum foil while resting.
- If your chicken is getting too charred but is not cooked through, you can always finish the cooking in a pre-heated 300 degrees Fahrenheit.oven. Just place the chicken in an oven safe dish and cover it with foil to keep it moist. Bake it until cooked through.
- You can store leftover grilled chicken in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Tequila Lime Wing Ingredients
There aren&rsquot any complicated ingredients that go into making the perfect tequila lime chicken wing, just a few things to cook down into the tequila lime sauce, chicken, and oil.
- Chicken wings &ndash you can&rsquot have a drunken chicken wing without the chicken! You can buy a party pack of pre-cut drumette and wingette (also called flats) pieces, or you can buy them as one (cheaper) and butcher them yourself. Learn how here.
- Oil &ndash This is a deep fried recipe, and to deep fry you must have a high heat oil. I recommend grapeseed, canola, or vegetable oil.
- Tequila &ndash Something magical happens to tequila when it&rsquos reduced with the right additions, I like an anejo or reposado tequila for this recipe.
- Limes &ndash 3 well juiced limes are needed for this recipe.
- Orange &ndash The addition of fresh orange juice really help balance out the tequila and limes.
- Honey &ndash The needed sweetness, and the stickiness of the final sauce is thanks to the honey.
- Jalapeno &ndash 1 pepper, sliced into rounds and simmered in the sauce creates a lovely bite to the tequila lime sauce without making it really spicy. It can be left out, or the seeds removed to reduce or eliminate any spice.
- Salt &ndash always, always!

Difference Between Lime Cordial and Lime Juice
If you haven't ever made cocktails with lime cordial, you may wonder what it is exactly. Different than regular lime juice, lime cordial is actually a unique blend of lime juice and sugar. In the mid-1800s, scurvy was a top concern for sailors, and the British government gave them daily doses of lime juice and rum to prevent it. In 1867, Lauchlin Rose found a way to preserve the lime juice without having to add alcohol, and lime cordial was invented. You can buy it today as Rose's Lime.

Why Student Debt Is a Racial Justice Issue
Student loan debt burdens more than 44 million Americans, and prevents millions from buying homes, starting businesses, saving for retirement, or even starting families. This debt is disproportionately affecting Black families, and Black women in particular.
Higher education has long been held as a critical gateway to getting a job and achieving economic stability and mobility. But because of long-standing systemic racial discrimination, Black families have far less wealth to draw on to pay for college, creating barriers for Black communities to access higher education and build wealth. Black families are more likely to borrow, to borrow more, and to have trouble in repayment. Two decades after taking out their student loans, the median Black borrower still owes 95 percent of their debt, whereas the median white borrower has paid off 94 percent of their debt.
Students of color pursue higher education in a social and economic system built on racist ideologies that is set up to work against them and perpetuate racial wealth and income and achievement gaps. To redress this systemic inequality, the ACLU, Center for Responsible Lending (CRL), and more than 300 other organizations are calling on the Biden-Harris administration and Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to use their authority under the Higher Education Act to cancel $50,000 of student debt per borrower, and Congress must act as well.
To understand the systemic issues rooted in the student debt crisis, we must start with its history. Though we have normalized the idea that students must take on debt for college, historically students benefited from broad public investment in higher education. However, not all students benefited equally: Black students had little access to GI Bill benefits and, even a decade after Brown v. Board of Education (1954), predominately white institutions (PWIs) in many states resisted integration and equal treatment. Further, state and federal governments continued to inadequately and inequitably fund historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) despite the high-quality opportunities they provided and the critical function they performed for Black students and communities. This created and cemented the racial wealth and resource gap in institutions of higher education.
It was in this context that Congress and President Lyndon B. Johnson passed the Higher Education Act of 1965. Recognizing the value of broad higher education access, Johnson hoped the legislation would open the doors of opportunity to everyone, especially Black students and other students of color, through Pell Grants and other subsidies.

Yet by the end of the 20th century, just as Black and Brown students and women gained entry after decades-long legal battles and social struggles, reactionary policymakers shifted the significant costs of higher education from the public to individual families. What had been considered a public good when it was predominantly for white men, became a public burden to be shifted to families.
This shift away from public financing, which accelerated after the Great Recession, led to predictable and damaging results: Today the cost of higher education is beyond imagination. It is out of reach for most families, especially Black and Brown students, unless they agree to unsustainable debt. In effect, we are perpetuating the ugly legacy of redlining and housing discrimination by requiring the same Black families that were historically denied wealth to take on a greater debt burden than their white peers.
The student debt crisis is just one of the latest iterations in the long and shameful history of too many unkept promises to Black and Brown communities. This country didn't keep its promise to give formerly enslaved people the land that they worked on to build wealth following the Civil War. Then from redlining, inaccessible GI benefits, and now the decreased value of college degrees, Black people have continuously had the roads to economic success blocked outright.
Canceling $50,000 in student debt can help secure financial stability and economic mobility for Black and Brown borrowers who are disproportionately burdened by this student debt crisis and the impacts of the racial wealth gap in this country. But even after graduation, Black and Latinx people face substantial job discrimination and earn far less than their white counterparts. This income gap makes building financial stability and managing student loan repayment even harder. A college education actually deepens the wealth gap due to the high costs and structural issues in our system. Yet, higher education is a necessity, not a luxury, for today's workforce.
Due to these persisting inequalities, even with $50,000 cancelation per borrower, there will still be millions of borrowers with debt. That number will only grow unless we overhaul loan repayment altogether and create a debt-free college system. The Center for Responsible Learning argues that the federal government should improve repayment by: (1) clearing the books of bad debts, such as debts that have been in repayment for longer than 15 years (2) restoring limitations on collections and making student debt dischargeable in bankruptcy and (3) making repayment truly affordable and budget-conscious through a new income-driven repayment plan open to all borrowers. For new students, a new social contract could also double the Pell Grant and increase funding and support for HBCUs.
We have an opportunity to help millions of families realize their American Dreams, secure financial stability and economic mobility for Black and Brown families, and take a critical step toward closing the racial wealth gap. The charge is clear, the moment is here, and the time for action is now: The Biden administration must cancel $50,000 in student debt per borrower.
