Spicy Mushroom Tacos 


  • 8 mushrooms sliced
  • 2 garlic clove chopped
  • 1 red chili
  • Handful of kale sliced
  • 1 tsp coconut yoghurt
  • 1/4 cucumber finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • Olive oil 
  • Lemon
  • Walnuts chopped
  • Avocado
  • Spinach leaves
  • Small tortilla wraps or taco shells


Fry the mushrooms, garlic, chilli and kale in oil for a few minutes. Season and add a fresh squeeze of lemon.

For the tzatziki, mix all ingredients together and season to taste!

To assemble; warm the taco or tortillas. Load with fresh spinach leaves. Add the tzatziki and the shroom filling. Add a slice of avocado and another drizzle of tzatziki.

Top with chopped walnuts and lemon zest. 

Livener Margarita


Serves 1
  ml oz
Livener 50 2
Fresh lime juice 15 0.5
Monin 'Triple Sec' syrup 7.5 0.25
Pink Himalayan salt
Fresh lime


Chill your glass before if you can. Wet half of the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, and coat it with pink Himalayan salt. To do this, add a bit of salt to a saucer, and push the wet side of the rim into it to coat it.

Add all of your ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake hard! You can use a sturdy glass jar if you haven't got a shaker.

Strain through a tea strainer into your glass, and garnish with a slice/wedge of lime. Ice is optional. Enjoy! 

If you are short of time and want to pop and pour, look to a chilled bottle of Blurred Vines Spark for uplifting, pink bubbles with a lick of cayenne chili to compliment your spicy tacos!
