Winner! // Spiked! Recipe Challenge Tequila


You all made this SO hard for Carrie & I!  Again.  We REALLY had to do some serious consideration and debate to pick this challenge’s winner.  They were all so delicious and creative! :)
This month’s Spiked! ingredient was Tequila.  Recipe submissions could be anything using tequila except for a cocktail or drink.
So, without further adieu here are the Spiked! Tequila Recipe Challenge runner-ups (in no particular order)…

Bananas Foster-rita Macarons from A Kitchen Hoor


Mango Shortcakes with Coconut Tequila Whipped Cream from Shake Bake and Party


Tequila Lime Bars with Chocolate Ganache from Your Girl For All Seasonings


And the winner of the Spiked! Tequila Recipe Challenge is… 

Deb from Cooking on the Front Burner with her Strawberry Margarita Shortcakes!

Congratulations Deb !!  What beautiful and tasty use of tequila!  Carrie and I will be in touch with you shortly to get you hooked up with your June featured ad spot with Carrie and your Starbucks gift card from me. :)

Carrie and I would love to thank each and every one of you who entered this month’s Spiked! Recipe Challenge.  We had 16 total Tequila laced entries for our third ever challenge.  I created a special Pinterest board for all of the Spiked! recipes, so please feel free to CLICK ON OVER and check them all out (and pin away while you are at it ;) ).

Carrie and I will be back again in July with an all new Spiked! Recipe Challenge!  We will announce that month’s libation of choice on the first of the month.  (Psssttt… we may be feeling just a tad patriotic in July. ;) )
