About Strawberry Margarita Recipe
IMG 2703 Strawberry Margarita Recipe


What could be more refreshing on a summer’s day than a cool strawberry margarita? This is a refreshing summer drink made with fresh strawberries. Also makes a delicious after-dinner drink.
Many have claimed to know the origins of Margarita. However the truth still remains unclear today.
The most known of all the historical claims behind the Margarita cocktail originates in 1948. A fabolous hostess and Dallas socialite, Margarita Sames, hosted a pool side Christmas party at her vacation home in Acapulco, Mexico. The party game of choice for Margarita was to get behind the bar and see what concoctions she could develop and let her party guests test and rate the results. That evening she mixed tequila with cointreau and lime juice. The result was a success among her guests and quickly traveled through the elite groups in Texas and soon to Hollywood under the name of Margarita.

Margarita has developed into one of the most popular cocktails today and has been modified in many different ways over the century. Many mexican restaurants were established all over the world and Margarita was served there.
Most Tequila is produced in Mexico with Blue Agave plant (century plant). According to the Mexican law, tequila must contain 51 percent of Blue Agave. Most Blue Agave plants that are used for tequila are produced in the State of Jalisco. Besides Jalisco, there are four other States in Mexico where they produce the plans for the purpose of producing tequila: Michoacan, Nayarit, Tamaulipas and Guanajuato. There are 100 percent Agave tequila sold in the United States, which must be inspected by the government before it’s shipped. Distillers use sugar plants to blend tequila but it must not exceed more than 49 percent of the bottle. Blended tequilas do not have to be produced in Mexico. There are three major categories in tequila: Gold Tequila, Tequila Anejo and White Tequila. Both Gold Tequila and Tequila Anejo is usually aged in white oak casks.

Mango Lassi

Lassi is a popular and traditional yogurt-based drink of the Indian subcontinent. Mango lassi is most commonly found in India and Pakistan though it is gaining popularity worldwide. It is made from yogurt, water and mango pulp. It may be made with or without additional sugar. It is widely available in UK, Malaysia and Singapore, due to the sizable Indian/Pakistani minority, and in many other parts of the world. In various parts of Canada, mango lassi is a cold drink consisting of sweetened kesar mango pulp mixed with yogurt, cream, or ice cream. It is served in a tall glass with a straw, often with ground pistachio nuts sprinkled on top.
Mango Lassi is available in almost every Indian cuisine restaurant in Bay area, CA. Paratha with lassi works best for me:)

About Cheesecake
After tasting my first cheesecake in New York, I got inspired to try it out on my own and it turned out great. Cheesecake is believed to have originated in ancient Greece. Historians believe that cheesecake was served to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C. However, cheese making can be traced back as far as 2,000 B.C. The Romans spread cheesecake from Greece to across Europe. Centuries later cheesecake appeared in America, the recipes brought over by immigrants.
