It is day two of Chez CateyLou’s 1st birthday celebration! Yesterday we had a delicious chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. Today, we are returning to where it all began – ChezCateyLou’s very first post on the delicious squash toast at ABC Kitchen here in NYC.  And now, one year later, I am sharing the recipe with you so that you can make this amazing toast at home!  ABC Kitchen’s squash toast is my absolute favorite dish that I’ve had at any restaurant, ever.  I’m literally obsessed and crave it weekly – it is kind of strange. We have been to ABC Kitchen several times this winter just to sit at the bar and eat squash toast.

Pineapple Mint Tequila Mojito - a delicious and refreshing cocktail! | ChezCateyLou.com

It’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you, but I could use a cocktail (or two)! This refreshing pineapple mint tequila mojito will do the trick! This cocktail is delicious. The light sweetness from the mint simple syrup and the fresh pineapple complements the tequila and lime perfectly. Top it off with club soda for some bubbly action and you have a perfect cocktail! The original recipe calls for rum, but TheBetterHalf and I prefer tequila mojito. I think this would also be great with vodka. I decided to put a sugared lime rim on our cocktails because it looks so pretty – and because I am a fan of sugar if you couldn’t tell. It is so easy, just zest one or two of your limes and mix it with some sugar. Cheers! Hope you all have a great weekend.  …
