Five Uses for Mayo for Your Cinco de Mayo

Growing up in the Geulasse household, mayo was an all purpose staple. Our mother would clean, cook, cleanse- you name it- with her trusty jar of mayonnaise. She would even travel with a baggie of it for emergencies! By the time my sister, Primrose, and I were old enough to walk, mayo had become an integral part of our life.

So in celebration of the greatest holiday of all (that’s Cinco de Mayo), Primrose and I felt it would be a good idea to spend the next week sharing our top five favorite uses for mayo. Tune in each day to see our new posts!

The Frothy Margarita

Take your drink to the next level with this protein packed margarita. The addition of egg in this recipes acts as the perfect base to smooth out even the cheapest of tequilas- and what’s not to love about the creamy foam that results from the agitation of ingredients??

What you’ll need:

1 oz Tequila

1 half of a lime (plus more to taste)

1 egg

1 tablespoon olive oil

Ice

A martini shaker

A glass rimmed with salt

Start by adding the tequila and oil to a clean martini shaker. I like to do the tequila first, as it gives the oil a solid base to rest on and actually removes some of the acridness you normally find in cheaper tequila.

Next separate your yolk from the white. Using your hand, break the yolk up into the shaker to ensure an even distribution.

Finally, squeeze approximately 1 half of a lime into the mix (or more if you desire).

Add ice and shake for approximately two minutes.

Pour your now delectable frothy margarita into a fancy glass (salt rim optional) and enjoy!

Author’s note: You can make this recipe for a group of 8-10 by using 1 handle of tequila, 17 egg yolks, 3 limes and 25 table spoons of olive oil. In place of a martini shaker I use egg beaters set on high for ten minutes to get the right consistency.

    Been looking for a marg recipe to serve 10 for my upcoming cinco de mayo party. Thanks for the tip! I’m surprised there’s not more lime in the large batch recipe. Has anyone tried this recipe and felt that it needed more lime?

          Hello all!
          Glad you’re planning to make the margaritas, they are such a hit. Grapefruit would work but you’ll want to make sure to balance the sweetness with a few extra dashes of vinegar (I like balsamic or white wine). Peaches would be so great! In fact I think 3-4 mashed peaches would really make this special. I might be posting an updated recipe 😉

          And please feel free to add extra lime if it’s not to taste- though in larger proportions a little goes a long ways.

        Hi all, thanks for the interest! I do not recommend vegan mayo, the soy milk won’t get the same frothy texture. Try 1/2 cup of tofu instead- great flavor and a thick texture!

    Wow! Margaritas! Love it!
    Tequila is always a crowd pleaser. I think it brings out people’s true nature! Haha!

    Love your blog. One question though, I’ve tried this recipe 3 times and I keep getting indigestion. Also my poops are a distinct yellow color. I mean I normally have poops with a yellow tint but these are like really yellow. Like Big Bird yellow. Please advise.
