Words you cant unsay


Ms. Megan hey Ms. Megan.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!

Yepper, That’s right folks, it IS in fact the lovely Ms. Megan’s B-day today (or yesterday ) (or tomorrow )
You know what it doesn’t matter…

Raise you glasses and wish this fine, strong, amazing woman a VERY happy birthday and recognize that this world is a better place for those of us that know her.

I thought long and hard on this Birthday wish and seeing as drinks where the topic I could find no better one then a sweet, yet fun-loving one I bring to the table.
( I was a waiter once btw. )

I give you the

Sweet Ms. Megan

Now this is what you do…



For Tequila Daisy Cocktail:

2 ounces high quality Tequila Blanco

1 ounce triple sec

2 tablespoons lime juice

For Strawberry Fool:

6 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and diced

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

3/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


To make cocktail: Combine the tequila, triple sec and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and strain into small tumbler until glass is about half to three-quarters full. Top with a generous dollop of strawberry fool and garnish with one strawberry top.

To make fool: Combine strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan, stirring until berries are well coated. Using masher or the back of a large spoon smash strawberries to a pulp, leaving only a few small chunks remain.

Place saucepan over medium-high heat and let cook, stirring constantly until just before boiling point, about 6 minutes. Stir in lemon zest and bring mixture to a full boil for about 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.

Skim any film or foam off of top of mixture and discard. Transfer syrup to a heatproof container and cool to room temperature before chilling in refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes.

In the meantime, whisk heavy cream in a large metal bowl until soft peaks form. Continuing to whisk, add remaining tablespoon of sugar to cream. Fold in vanilla extract and whisk for a few more minutes until stiff peaks form.

In a slow and steady stream pour cooled strawberry syrup into whipped cream, continuing to whisk until desired color and consistency is reached.





Now no screwing around… get to drinking..

and if I found out you haven't raised at least one toast to her today.. heaven help you because I sure wont. I WILL find you, because there is NO more deserving person on this earth.

Love you
From this guy across the pond.. named HR 🙂
keep smiling Megan, It makes the rest of us stronger.

  5. And here I was thinking that the steps to make Fool would be to combine Tequila and El Guapo…

    Happy birthday, Megan!

  6. A belated but still heartfelt Happy Birthday Megan, from this edge of the American continent! 😀
    And I’m impressed with the domestic side H R has shown us. Cooking, mixing, serving, and not a BBQ in sight.
