I gotta say, I’m a tequila lover. After years of drinking sub-par vodka (among other things) at college parties, I needed a change in my life. Once I got hooked, my friends knew that they could always find a personal salt shaker and knife in my room, along with limes in my mini-fridge. Some of my friends cannot stand tequila, but I grew to love it’s warmness and wthe bite of lime at the end. Salt, tequila, lime became my drinking mantra.
So, one night this summer, my friends and I decided to make it a tequila night. As per usual, we knew we had to go and buy a lime along with our Jose Cuervo – but then something dawned on us… my friend Ilana had an epiphany… we need them… We rushed over to the nearest CVS in NYC – they didn’t have them. We ran across the street to a small bodega, searched the shelves, and finally, Zoe let out a sharp, “YES!” We’ve got the perfect pairing for our tequila…
Hint of Lime Tostitos. Now, you might be thinking, you seriously just hyped up chips? Well, Yes. I. Did. After taking the strong, warm tequila shot and biting the sour lime, having the crunch of the chip, along with the tanginess of the hint of lime is AMAZING. We were shocked that none of us had ever thought of this combo before! C’mon, it makes sense… tequila and limes are the perfect pair so why not throw in some crunch, too?!
Since that night, we’ve sworn to always bring a bag of Hint of Lime Tostitos anytime we drink tequila. And we all lived happily ever after… ;)
