Margarita Frizada

Recipe by Pastry Chef Paula Anast

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve sugar, remove from heat, add zest and cool. When cool, add juice and pass mixture through strainer. Add tequila and spin in ice maker/sorbet machine.

When ready to serve, rim the edge of a margarita glass with lemon juice and salt. Place a generous scoop of sorbet in the glass. Serve with margarita on the side.

Paula Anast has been the pastry chef at Mas for two years and Otro Mas since its inception. She has learned her craft mainly "on the job", though she did work for a short time in the pastry kitchen at Hudson Club and attended some culinary schooling. A 30-year-old native of Chicago, she previously owned a retail home furnishing store in Wicker Park, across the street from Mas. It was, in fact, when she owned this store that John recruited her for the kitchen at Mas, noting her ability to create great tasting, home-made desserts.
