The earthy heat from our Red Sauce Green Chile Liqueur and the smooth orange flavor from our ORANGE you glad to see me? small batch triple sec combine beautifully with either blanco or reposedo tequila in this lovely, refreshing and slightly spicy, not too sweet margarita. Soon, you'll be able to purchase our Burquila Joven Agave Spirit, but for now, use your favorite tequila to make this at home. (And if you live in Placitas, click here to order this all mixed up and delivered to your door!)
And for the rim, which is as delicious as it is gorgeous, we combine Jillipepper's Hot Fiesta Pepper with sea salt.
