South-Of-The-Border Crab Boil Menu
South-of-the-Border Crab Boil
Sunny Mango-Habanero Guacamole
Ripe habaneros bring the heat, plus a fruity, floral flavor that pairs perfectly with fresh mango.
Jicama-and-Grapefruit Slaw with Creamy Lime Dressing
Quickly blanching the habaneros moderates their fiery nature to make them a balanced, lively addition to this cool slaw.
Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins
For a milder muffin, remove the seeds from the jalapeños before dicing.
What To Drink
Sparkling rosés have a creamy texture from the bubbles that pairs well with the tender seafood. Red-fruit flavors tame the spicy seasonings.
Gruet Nonvintage Brut Rosé (New Mexico, American AVA; $17). Rose petal aromas meet briary berry, cherry, and red plum flavors; fresh-baked-bread notes lurk underneath.
Scharffenberger Nonvintage Brut Rosé "Excellence" (Mendocino County; $23). A crisp, vibrant side balances raspberry, strawberry, and cherry flavors, followed by a long, nutty finish.
Schramsberg Multi-Vintage "Mirabelle" Brut Rosé (California; $29). Wild strawberry aromas lead into a gamut of red fruit—cherry, raspberry—carried by the exuberant bubbles and acidity on a lingering finish.
