Mangia Monday: Hatch Chile Margarita

Are you looking to spice things up at your reception? Check out this Hatch Chile Margarita, brought to you by BevMo.

Hatch Chile Margarita
2 ounces Hatch Chile-Infused Patron Silver Tequila
3 ounces Tres Agaves Margarita Mix
1/2 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce lime juice
Salt for rim

To infuse the tequila, wash and chop one hatch chile and insert it into a tequila bottle. You can also ration off just a few ounces of tequila and drop in half of the chile. Allow four to twenty-four hours for the infusion to be complete, preferably keeping the mixture at room temperature. When it’s ready, strain the tequila (if desired) into a martini shaker filled with ice. Add the Margarita mix, Cointreau, and lime juice. Shake well, then strain into a rocks glass filled with ice and rimmed with salt. Garnish with a lime and a hatch chile and serve.
