We invited my family and friends over for tacos, tequila, pan dulce and coffee.

My birthday was on Halloween, so we hosted brunch the Sunday before.

It was so much fun and easy to host! I made most of the food the night before. We made the cutest pumpkin and pineapple empanadas. I made fresh salsas, guacamole and wamed up the tortillas as everyone arrived. Nothing but crumbs and empty pitchers by the end of the party. The cocktails were way too delicious and easy to drink.

On the menu:
Flour Tortillas
Corn Tortillas
Refried Black Beans
Refried Pinto Beans
Roasted Golden Potatoes
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Sauteed Nopales and Mushrooms
Sauteed bell pepper and onion
Guacamole
Chipotle Salsa
Salsa Verde
Pickled Red Onion
Cashew Lime Crema
Pineapple Empanadas
Pumpkin Empanadas
Mexican Wedding Cookies

We made pitchers of:
Sangria (Bobby Flay's recipe: red wine, cointreau, brandy, simple syrup & fruit)
La Condesa's Alma Blanca (habanero infused tequila, muddled with fresh corn, ginger liqueur, pineapple juice, agave & lemon juice + hibiscus salt rim)
Fresh Squeezed Agave Margaritas with raspberry salt

I have most of the recipes on my blog if you want to check them out. Those empanadas were so good!

Oh wow! Those cocktails sound dangerous. Especially the combination. I'd be switching back and forth on each sip.
