El Matador Punch

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, January 15, 2010

To be quite honest, I’m not really sure what makes this Mexican-inspired, but the person who posted this recipe on Tasty Kitchen said it was served at a local Mexican restaurant and she thought it was delicious.  Good taste, my friend, good taste.

I brought it to a dinner with friends this week and everyone there loved it too.  I probably should have made double the recipe, but I didn’t have an extra pitcher to transport it.  Based on their reaction, I thought it was only fair and right in the world to share the recipe with you too.

It really did taste great with the enchiladas we had that night, but I bet it’d go with just about any kind of cuisine you wanted to serve it with.  And, yes, I ended that sentence with a preposition.  And I plan on doing it all the time so I’m sorry to all my English teachers.  I’m out of school now and like writing however I want, bad grammar and all.  My deepest apologies.

And here it is… a yummy, non-alcoholic, sweet, but not-too-sweet punch for you and your friends to enjoy.

Love,
