It has just gotten CRAZY HOT in New Mexico, and I find myself craving one of these Spicy Green Chile Margaritas every afternoon around 5pm. Okay, maybe the craving actually starts at 4 (waiting to drink it until later just makes it that much more refreshing!) and maybe I end up having two when all is said and done. See if you can resist!
Our Green Sauce Green Chile Liqueur heats things up while you cool down and our new small-batch triple sec* perfectly balances the flavors in this absolutely perfectly summer cocktail.
And for the rim, which is as delicious as it is gorgeous, we combine Jillipepper's Hot Fiesta Pepper with sea salt.
* This will be yummy with your favorite triple sec or even better with Countreau! Our small-batch triple sec isn't quite available to purchase, but is coming VERY soon!
RECIPE:2 oz Your favorite Blanco/Silver/Plata Tequila
