Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. Last year - 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Rose Lemonade

To quote Rob Thomas, "Man it's a hot one, like 7 inches from the midday sun!" We've had several days of intense sun and are due for more this week. It's become an ongoing mission to stay cool and hydrated. We've been drinking a lot of this refreshingly light and floral Rose Lemonade with our meals, adding a splash of gin in the evenings. This is a great batch drink for parties and BBQ's.

Here's my recipe:
