- 2 cups of vodka
- 1 cup of Blue Curaçao
- 2 cups of chilled lemonade
- 4 cups of frozen pineapple juice
- Garnish with a lemon or cherry
Stir together the vodka, curacao and lemonade, blending in the frozen pineapple juice last to lend a slushy texture.
- 2 tbsp Altos Plata Tequila
- 2 lbs chopped tomatoes
- 1 chopped jalapeño
- 2 cloves chopped garlic
- 1/2 lime (juice)
- Handful chopped cilantro
- Generous pinch of salt
- Small pinch of sugar

- 4 tbsp vodka
- 1 tbsp tomato purée
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 7 oz pineapple juice
- 1 clove garlic
Cut slashes into chicken breasts and marinate for 4 hours.
Grill over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes, flipping them over at the halfway point.
- 1 cup Altos Plata Tequila
- 9-inch pie crust
- 2 ½ quarts fresh strawberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 1 (3 oz) package strawberry jello
Bake pie crust according to the recipe or package instructions.
Add strawberries to the baked pie crust and arrange in the crust as evenly as possible.
In a medium saucepan, combine the tequila, sugar, and corn starch and bring to a steady boil for about 2 minutes, then add in the jello mix (do not use sugar-free varieties).
Reduce the heat to medium, let simmer for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Pour the mixture slowly over the strawberries without submerging them. Add the berries to the crust without allowing the sauce to spill over.
Chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours until jello has set. Remove and top with whipped cream, and serve cold or room temp.
