Black Bean & Squash Veggie Burgers

We always have people with a variety of eating preferences & palates attending our BBQ's. In response, I've always had fun experimenting with flavors and making new burgers for our get-togethers. This time I want to share one that was tried and tested with our family recently and is sure to be a hit at your summer BBQ's. This soy-free veggie burger is packed with flavor, that plays off the herby cilantro and spicy BBQ sauce, topped with an avocado slice on a sesame seed bun.

New Orleans Fizz

The Ramos gin fizz was invented in 1888 at by Henry C. Ramos at his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon in New Orleans. Originally called a "New Orleans Fizz" it was one of the city's most famous cocktails before Prohibition. The drink's popularity had over 32 bartenders working at the Imperial at once making nothing but the Ramos gin fizz during the Carnival of 1915!

This tasty drink reminds me of a Gin version of Milk punch. The orange flower water gives it a unique florally flavor, while the egg white gives it a silky foamy texture.
