Señor Lee

This version of a margarita substitutes Royal Rose Three Chiles syrup for Triple Sec.  Spicy!  Muchas gracias, Elizabeth...

3 oz. tequila
3/4 oz. Royal Rose Three Chiles Syrup
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

Combine ice, syrup, and lime. Add tequila and shake vigorously.  Serve on the rocks with a salt rim.

  1. This drink is amazing!
    My least favorite ingredient in a traditional Margarita has always been Triple Sec. Often when I've had guests to my place, the next night, the only alcohol left over is an almost-full bottle of Triple Sec, and I admit, I've actually chugged it in times of desperation. You know. . . when it's 3 a.m. and you just can't bear to leave your apt., but can't bear to be sober, either. Well maybe that's just me.
    Anyway. . . I've found the Three Chiles syrup to be a perfect Triple Sec substitute. It doesn't taste too sugary or chemical-y, yet contains the necessary sugar to offset the tartness of all the lime juice. It adds a great subtle (or not so subtle, depending on how liberal you want to get with the stuff) kick to a traditional Margarita. I'm very loyal to this perfect Royal Rose concoction.
