National Margarita Day: Celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian explains what makes the perfect margarita

Margaritas. You know ’em, and you probably love ’em. But what makes some versions of this popular happy hour cocktail — and Cinco de Mayo staple — better than others?

Well, according to Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian, the answer is pretty basic: the ingredients.

NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY: UNUSUAL MARGARITA-MAKING TECHNIQUES TO TRY

“Like everything else, ingredients and product. Only the best limes squeezed to order. Pure cane sugar. Great tequila,” the celebrity chef told Fox News.

However, the ingredients aren’t the only elements that push a margarita from just any drink to your favorite drink. It’s also how you use them.

“You must not over-sweeten the drink. It can’t taste sweet the first sip. If it does, by the time you finish the 8-ounce glass, it will leave a sugary residue, and you won’t want another one,” Zakarian said.

“It’s a classic mistake making them too sweet,” Zakarian said.

To avoid this amateur folly, Zakarian shared a recipe that delivers those authentic tequila flavors, but with a fruity — and spicy — twist.

‘Leaning Tower of Dallas’ becomes viral attraction after implosion failed to collapse building

When life gives you lemons, make it a tourist attraction.

A botched demolition Sunday morning near downtown Dallas has resulted in a must-visit location now deemed the Leaning Tower of Dallas.

McDonald’s debuts pickle- and beef-scented candles as part of ‘Quarter Pounder Fan Club’ merch

Ah, the sweet, sweet smell of fast-food hamburgers.

Now you can finally have that lingering odor of onions and fast-food beef in your house anytime you want — without even having to get take-out.

KFC, CROCS TEAM UP TO CREATE BUCKET CLOG: ‘WHAT FRIED CHICKEN FOOTWEAR DREAMS ARE MADE OF’

That’s right: McDonald’s has debuted a collection of Quarter Pounder with Cheese-scented candles, allegedly because “there’s no better smell than 100 percent fresh beef and a perfect combination of toppings,” the press release shared.

The collection of six scented candles, which is part of a larger assortment of Quarter Pounder-themed merchandise, comes in glass jars representing the six components of a Quarter Pounder: sesame seed bun, ketchup, pickle, cheese, onion, and 100-percent fresh beef.

While the customizable candles can be burned in any variation, the brand recommends burning them all simultaneously “for maximum deliciousness.”

Among them: the “Quarter Pounder with Love” locket, for those who want to keep the hamburger “close to their heart”; the Couples Quarter Pounder mittens, which come with two of the four mittens attached so wearers can “hold hands and hold a hot and deliciously juicy Quarter Pounder”; and the self-explanatory (yet oddly comely) 2020 Quarter Pounder calendar.

The new line also features pins, stickers and a fan club T-shirt.

Kroger shoppers in Indiana film deer running through aisles, jumping meat counter

Shoppers at an Indiana Kroger were in for a big surprise when a deer tore through the grocery store Saturday evening.

Brigitte Dan was shopping with her mom and two children at the Zionsville location of the supermarket chain when she recorded the obviously startled deer sprinting down the store aisles.

In a still shot of the deer, it can be seen jumping over the meat counter, appearing to momentarily get stuck.

In video uploaded to Facebook by Dan, the animal is also seen running down an aisle at the end of the store while employees chased after it.

Dan added that the deer was clearly hurt from running into items in the store.

“My my… she was very scared from the special attentions from other shoppers! She was hurt from jumping over the meat/seafood glass counter! Her nose was bleeding,” she wrote.

The deer was eventually able to exit the store on its own.

This weed-loving couple got more creative than the typical “Mary Jane” moniker marijuana aficionados have used in the past and instead opted to name their daughters SaTiva and Indica – two types of cannabis plant.

“UPDATE: My brother is excited to announce the birth of his 2nd daughter!” Lee wrote in the post, before following it up with a “…and before you ask, yes, her name is exactly what you think it is.”

Attached to the February 2020 post was a tweet Lee had shared in 2018 announcing the birth of his first niece, who was named “SaTiva,” a play on the sativa plant, which is known as more of a head high, whereas indica is a body high.

“My first niece is named SaTiva…I just…” the uncle posted.

The proud uncle was impressed that his brother “kept with the theme.”

Those on Twitter had a field day with the comments, suggesting other options if the family continues to expand.

Valentine’s Day poll: American’s claim this dinner idea is most underrated

Westlake Legal Group RestaurantRomanticWineIstock Valentine's Day poll: American's claim this dinner idea is most underrated fox-news/food-drink/food/food-trends fox news fnc/food-drink fnc article Alexandra Deabler 884f17f1-a814-5fc0-874e-ef0cff229c9b /FOX NEWS/LIFESTYLE/OCCASIONS/Holiday

Give your partner what they really want this Valentine’s Day: simplicity.

According to an Instacart survey conducted by The Harris Poll, Americans really just want to chill this Feb. 14 — and they’d prefer to eat with their hands. In fact, 45 percent of Americans polled used the phrases “low-key” and “easy” as far as their ideal night.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Of 2,000 Americans polled, a slim majority (51 percent) said they would rather go out for the romantic holiday, while 49 percent wanted to stay in. However, despite the locale, the most desired cuisine remained the same: pizza. Instacart’s survey found that 41 percent of Americans ranked “pizza” among the most underrated Valentine’s Day foods.

But if you’re not into a piping hot New York slice (or one of these regional pizza types), there are plenty of other finger foods your beloved really wants to you make (or order, or take them out for), including fried chicken (20 percent), barbecue (19 percent) or tacos (18 percent).

But aside from savory suppers, Americans are craving sweets. Apparently so much so that 22 percent of those surveyed said they’d prefer an entire meal made of dessert over any other type of dinner.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER

If you’re among those staying in on the romantic holiday, make sure you wait for your special someone to get there before you start dinner: 51 percent claimed they would prefer to cook a meal together rather than cook alone, or be cooked for.

Did you mess that up already, too? That’s fine. You can still save the night with an assortment of chocolates, an idea which sees a 1,125-percent increase in search traffic in the week leading up the Valentine’s Day. However, even though 61 percent agree that chocolate sets the mood, you better leave the heart-shaped boxes to Kurt Cobain, because 43 percent describe the lovey-dovey assortments as “the most overrated, stereotypical” gift. Probably best to just stick to these state faves, instead.

Maldives officers apologize to tourist detained for ‘indecent’ bikini after arrest video goes viral

The Maldives Police Service has issued an apology for how its officers handled a British tourist arrested for “indecent exposure” at a public beach after video of the incident was shared on social media. The woman in the video accused the officers of “sexually assaulting” her during the arrest.

TOURIST FINED FOR WEARING ‘EROTIC AND LEWD’ STRING BIKINI TO BEACH

Cecilia Jastrzembska, who has appeared reportedly on reality show “First Dates” and game show “Ninja Warrior UK,” was vacationing on Maafushi island Thursday when she was arrested by three officers for wearing a bikini. According to a press release from the police service, others on the beach complained about the woman being “inappropriately clad.”

Warning: Video contains graphic language.

The video shows Jastrzembska resisting arrest while three officers attempt to handcuff her arms behind her back. Another man is seen offering a sarong to cover the woman.

“You are sexually assaulting me,” she is heard repeatedly screaming at the officers while she struggles against them.

According to the press release, the three officers allegedly approached Jastrzembska and requested “her to comply with the local regulations,” but she refused and was then detained, authorities claim.

However, since the video was circulated widely on social media, the officers received backlash for how they treated Jastrzembska, who was alleged to have been inebriated at the time.

“I apologize to the tourist & the public for this. The challenge I have taken up is to professionalize the police service & we are working on that,” Commissioner Mohamed Hameed wrote on Twitter.

In the statement shared on Twitter, authorities begin by saying “tourists, on local islands are requested to respect the community’s cultural sensitives and local regulations by restricting the wearing of swimwear to certain areas of the island,” before apologizing for the “regretful manner in which this incident took place.”

The police service is reportedly launching a full investigation into the incident to ensure that “disproportionate measures” are not repeated.

Jastrzembska was released later that day without charges.

The Maldives is an Islamic nation in the Indian Ocean. Though popular with tourists for its beaches, visitors are asked to dress modestly outside of resorts “as a sign of respect to the community.” On the island of Maafushi, only private tourist beaches allow bikinis. Maldivian law does not permit the swimwear on other beaches.

Kayak fisherman hooks 500-pound marlin, results in 6-hour battle

Gonna need a bigger boat.

ICE FISHERMEN RESCUED FROM BAY IN UPSTATE NEW YORK AFTER FALLING THROUGH ICE

A fisherman in a kayak reportedly set an unofficial world record after he managed to hook a 500-pound black marlin off the Pacific Coast of Panama. The video footage, which was recently shared to YouTube, shows the epic battle (over six hours) between fisherman Adam Fisk and the giant marlin.

Fisk, a fishing guide and partner at Los Buzos Panama fishing resort, was out on the water with a group of friends in January. While the men were paddling out in their kayaks, the giant 15-foot marlin took Fisk’s line.

Robert Field, a kayak fisherman, videographer and host of YouTube series “Field Trips with Robert Field” was filming the exchange and posted the footage on his page, where it has been viewed more than 400,000 times.

“In this episode, Adam Fisk of Los Buzos Resort makes history once again when an estimated 500-plus pound marlin takes his bait while kayak fishing in front of his home on Panama’s Pacific coast. Watch as the team assembles to support him for what turns out to be a 6-hour fight that spans over 15 miles,” Field wrote of the video.

Fisk kept the marlin on his line for 4-hours, 37-minutes, allowing the fish to drag him out to sea and, hopefully, tire itself out. However, Fisk did not want to let the fish fight too hard, since they planned on releasing it alive.

“Marlin are notorious for fighting so hard and for so long that they die of exhaustion. It’s quite common, even when the angler intends to release the fish unharmed,” Field told For the Win.

Since Fisk did not have the leverage in the kayak to reel in the marlin, the men transferred the rod to a nearby panga boat and Field took over to bring the fish up enough to cut it loose.

The entire exchange last 6 hours, 12 minutes, the outlet reported.

Fisk was incredibly proud of his catch — only slightly larger than the 450-pound marlin he caught last year.

“I can’t think of a more epic experience to happen in the world of kayak fishing, and the fact that Robert Field was here to capture it all is absolutely incredible,” Fisk wrote on his Facebook page. “This catch is one for the books and one we will all be telling for the rest of our lives. So proud of the whole team!”

“Ahh, politics. United, divisive, and smells like the same old s—. Burn it down and start over with a revolutionary new scented candle!” the product description reads, claiming the candle is made with real dehydrated horse poop.

The limited-edition candle retails for $24 on the company’s website, and it claims it is perfect for “family gatherings, comment sections, séances, and unprompted conversations in line at the convenience store.”

But if you want your home to smell more apolitical, the brand has a variety of other scents – like cornbread and the popular fried chicken – to keep your abode smelling more delicious than contentious.
