Featured Big Tex Choice Award Finalists

Want to try something that is deep-friend, bacon-covered, battered, buttered and gift-wrapped in a package of fat and sugar? Check out today’s featured finalist for the 2015 Big Tex Choice Awards.

15_food blog_margaritaSmokey Bacon Margarita: Like bacon but wish you could incorporate it into happy hour? Look no further and feast your eyes, and taste buds, on the Smokey Bacon Margarita! The Smoky Bacon Margarita takes the smokiness of freshly-cooked bacon and infuses it into a frozen lime margarita. With just a hint of smoke, this drink still captures the zesty citrus flavor of a traditional margarita. Finished off with a pinch of bacon crumbles on top, this thirst-quenching drink is served in a collectible souvenir cup for an added funky flair. Beat the heat and experience one at the Fair this year!

2015 Big Tex® Choice Awards!
