It’s 11 am on a Sunday morning. You wake up, slightly confused, and pretty hungover. Your kitchen is littered with red cups, shot glasses and various containers of alcohol. You can’t even thinking about drinking, let alone what you are going to do with all of this leftover alcohol.

If you don’t want to save and drink all of the leftover Natty, why not cook with it instead? There are tons of great recipes that include alcohol, perfect for a lazy Sunday and for eating good food to prepare for a hectic week of classes.

Perhaps make this salsa before a night out drinking, rather than using it to cure a nasty hangover. Letting the salsa soak in the tequila overnight will create a boozy snack perfect before a night out.
