Gameday Style will soon be setting up a lot of posts to get you ready for the season.  In the meantime, relax with a classic combination to welcome in summer.  The idea of this is two-fold...get these recipes down pat as your go-tos all summer.  Once you practice enough, you'll always have a fun cocktail and snack to mix up for summer evenings and carry on into the tailgate season.  Cheers! source for this pretty margarita: http://www.dmagazine.com/Home/2009/07/02/The_Best_Margarita_in_Dallas.aspx Rick Bayless is the el rey (King!) of authentic Mexican food.  We are huge fans at our
