It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with blood oranges right now, so here’s yet another cocktail featuring my favorite citrus fruit. This simple cocktail is just the right blend of smoky heat, sour citrus, mellow honeyed sweetness, and smooth tequila. ? Ok, gotta run and go make a pitcher of this now.
- 2 oz tequila blanco
- 1 oz chipotle honey syrup
- .5 oz blood orange juice
- .5 oz lime juice
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until chilled. Doubled strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a chipotle-sugar dusted strawberry.
Chipotle Honey Syrup
100ml honey, 100ml water, 1/4-1/2 tsp ground chipotle pepper (or more, to taste).
2 tbsp sugar, 1/8 tsp ground chipotle pepper (or more, to taste)
