Ingredients

Chipotle Rim
  • 10 parts chipotle powder
  • 1 part fine sugar
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • Margarita
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce agave nectar
  • ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce bourbon brown sugar barbecue sauce
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • Chef notes

    Putting barbecue sauce in a drink might sound pretty out there, but it really amps up the sweet and smoky flavors of this classic citrusy cocktail.

    Preparation

    For the rim:

    1.

    On a small plate, stir together the chipotle powder and sugar until well blended.

    2.

    Place a small amount of lime juice on a second small plate.

    3.

    Dip the rim of a cocktail glass into the lime juice and then slowly rotate the edge around in the chipotle sugar. Fill with ice and set aside.

    For the margarita:

    1.

    Fill a cocktail shaker with several ice cubes and add the tequila, agave nectar, lime juice, barbecue sauce and bitters.

    2.

    Cover shaker and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds.

    3.

    Strain contents from the shaker into the rimmed glass and serve.
