It is a big welcome back to the show Pituka Ortega Heilbron, we talked in September about the Cinema Sanitas. Well, it is time for this month showings, two movies that will run from 7pm on the 23rd to midnight on the Sunday 25th. A great choice of movies:
To review the contest rules, you must access the CINEMA SANITAS website
1 1/2 oz tequila blanco
3/4 oz lime juice, freshly squeezed
3/4 oz simple syrup
Red wine such as Cabernet
- In a shaker filled with ice, pour in tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup.
- Shake until chilled and pour into glass of choice (I prefer a martini glass), leaving ¼” for the red wine
- Set a spoon at a 45 degree angle barely placed inside of the margarita. The back of the spoon should be facing the ceiling.
- Pinch the top of the wine bottle with your finger and slowly pour red wine onto the back of the spoon and let it drizzle on the surface of the margarita.
- Pour until you have about 1/4 inch of red wine in the glass.
- Congratulations! You’ve made a really cool looking layered drink!
Tip: Don’t have any simple syrup? No worries! Mix equal parts white sugar and water (ex: 8 oz sugar, 8 oz water) into a microwave safe container and heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cooking time will vary depending on how much sugar and water you’re cooking!
If you want to make this for a crowd, make the base ahead (tequila, simple syrup, and lime juice) and place in the fridge until you’re ready to serve! Then top each glass with the red wine.
FUN GARLISH FOR HALLOWEEN COCKTAILS

4 tablespoons (60 ml) Thai fish sauce
4 tablespoons (50 g) sugar
3 tablespoons (45 ml) bottled tamarind paste
1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon (15 ml) unseasoned rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sweet paprika, for color (optional)
2 teaspoons chili sauce, such as Sriracha
3 to 4 cups medium-width rice noodles, soaked
2 tablespoons (30 ml) vegetable oil, such as canola, grapeseed or peanut oil
cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon dried shrimp
1/2 cup (95 g) chicken, cut into thin chunks, 1-inch lengths
2 large eggs, whisked
½ cup carrots, shredded
8 shrimp, peeled and cleaned
1 cup (240 g) bean sprouts
1/4 cup (50 g) dry-roasted unsalted peanuts, crushed
3 to 4 garlic chives (or scallions), cut into 2-inch lengths on a bias
1 lime, cut for garnish
Chili flakes, if desired
For the Pad Thai Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the fish sauce, sugar, tamarind paste, lime juice, vinegar, paprika and chili sauce. Set aside.
For the Pad Thai: Soak the noodles in enough warm water to cover for 1 hour.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the oil and coat the skillet completely. When the skillet starts to smoke, add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 seconds. Add the chicken pieces and dried shrimp and cook, stirring, until they begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. until no longer pink.
Push ingredients in the skillet to one side and let the oil settle in the center of skillet. Add the eggs into the oil and let set until half-cooked, about 30 seconds, then lightly scramble. Combine with the remaining cooked ingredients in the skillet, scraping the bits from the bottom before they burn. Add the drained noodles and cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Reserve the noodle soaking water.
On a side of the pan, add the shrimp and shredded carrots and cook 2-3 minutes. Mix all ingredients together until both the chicken and shrimp are at medium doneness. Add the sauce and fold into the mixture.
Place half of the bean sprouts, half of the crushed peanuts and the garlic chives (or scallions) in the center of noodles, and then spoon some noodles over them to cover and let steam for 30 seconds. If the skillet seems dry, add a small amount of the noodle soaking water. Mix everything together.
Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with the remaining bean sprouts, peanuts, lime and chili flakes (if desired).
