A smoky, sweet Margarita with a touch of Chipotle and orange and lime for a refreshing taste!
Ingredients
  • 2 thick orange slices
  • 6 to 8 cubes of ice
  • ⅛ teaspoon chipotle juice from canned Chipotle in Adobo sauce
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 and ½ ounces tequila (I used Tequila Reposado)
  • ½ ounce flavored liqueur (I used Triple Sec)
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
Instructions
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange slices with ice, chipotle juice and lime juice.
  2. Add more ice, and add tequila, orange liqueur, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a glass filled with ice. (See note).
  3. Serve garnished with either a lime or orange slice.
Notes
Simple syrup is equal amounts sugar and water heated until the sugar dissolves; and then cooled. If you want to avoid pulp in your drink, drain through a very fine strainer.
