  • 2 thick orange slices
  • 6 to 8 cubes of ice
  • 1/8 teaspoon chipotle juice from canned Chipotle in Adobo sauce
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 and 1/2 ounces tequila I used Tequila Reposado
  • 1/2 ounce flavored liqueur I used Triple Sec
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup


  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange slices with ice, chipotle juice and lime juice.
  • Add more ice, and add tequila, orange liqueur, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a glass filled with ice. (See note).
  • Serve garnished with either a lime or orange slice.


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.
