This is the second recipe in cooking with Pura Vida Tequila mini series.  Thanks for coming back!  I call this recipe Tequila Syrup.  Only because these two things make everything better!  So imagine how great they are together!  Hint:  This recipe is awesome, just like you!

Here is a fun little recipe for Pura Vida Tequila Syrup  so when you need to add a little glazed sweetness to a dessert, that adds a extra little kick of agave for flavor.

In this instance I used it over fried plantains because while I am not a huge fan of them, my husband couldn’t leave them alone!  The best part about this drizzle is that it starts off so basic and you can expand on it with different flavors or additives and it still holds just that little hint of tequila that adds a new and exciting characteristic to the flavors of your run of the mill dessert.  Take your deserts from dab to Pura Vida Fab!
