KIWI MARGARITA: -1 1/2 oz. blanco tequila -2 oz. sour mix (homemade is best!) -Quarter of 1 kiwi -1 lime wedge -Tajin (for rim) In a glass shaker, muddle a quarter of a kiwi and a lime wedge. Pack with ice. Add sour mix & tequila. Shake. Dip rim of glass into water then into tajin for the rim. Strain margarita into glass & garnish with kiwi wedges."

"This steak offers a really interesting combination of flavors. It's done in Tagalog-style, which for me compliments the meat pretty well."
