Cinco de Mayo is next Tuesday and now is just the right time to spice up your kitchen for the holiday. Bevmo! is coming to you with this Latin-inspired Tequila Lime Chicken Wings recipe with a punch that is sure to get your Cinco party going. P.S. We suggest Reposado.
Spiked Tequila Lime Chicken Wings
1 pound of chicken wings, cut into segments, tips removed and discarded
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
Tequila Lime Sauce
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup Partida Tequila (Blanco or Reposado)
1 tablespoon agave syrup, sometimes called nectar
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon adobo sauce
1/2 tablespoon freshly cracked pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season the wings with salt and pepper and arrange on a
baking sheet in a single layer. Cook until just brown and crisp, about 45 minutes.
Make the sauce: Combine the lime zest and juice, tequila, agave syrup, cumin, adobo sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 tablespoon pepper in a bowl. Pour over the warm wings and let marinate at least 30 minutes. Preheat a grill to high. Grill the wings until marked, 10 to 15 minutes, turning as needed. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan and cook until slightly thick, about 8 minutes (you can do this on the grill as well). Drizzle the wings with the sauce and top with cilantro, if desired.
