Welcome Guest Author Meri Allen and Frozen Margarita #recipe #giveaway

TINA KASHIANI’m excited to welcome my good friend, Meri Allen, to Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen to celebrate her new release, "The Rocky Road to Ruin." Here’s Meri!

In my new mystery, THE ROCKY ROAD TO RUIN, my main character Riley Rhodes becomes manager of an ice cream shop. This is a switch from her former profession -- Riley was a librarian at the CIA with occasional undercover assignments. Yes, it’s a big switch!

Riley learns that the shop’s former owner, Elizabeth “Buzzy” Spooner delighted in creating “boozy” ice creams and sorbets. One of her bestselling recipes is the Ultimate Frozen Margarita, a favorite for bachelorette parties and taco nights.


I adore margaritas in any form, on the rocks or frozen, but this delightful sorbet’s velvety texture is hard to beat. Serve it with a spoon and a straw because it will melt into a tasty slushie. Remember, enjoy responsibly – there’s a reason Buzzy called it boozy!


Buzzy’s Ultimate Frozen Margarita

2 cups water

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4-5 limes, depending on size)

3–4 Tbsp triple sec

3–4 Tbsp tequila

1 tsp lime zest

Stir water and sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Pour the sugar base into a bowl.
