Preparation

To make Spiced Tequila, peel the orange and lemon, keeping pieces as large as possible. Cut peels into strips and place in a small bowl with TABASCO® Green Sauce; let stand 30 minutes. Remove peel from pepper sauce and place in a jar with the tequilas; refrigerate at least 24 hours.

To make Fresh Margarita Mix, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved; chill until ready to use.

For each drink, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, and add Spiced Tequila, Grand Marnier®, and Fresh Margarita Mix. Cover and shake well. Rub lime wedge around rim of glass and dip rim into salt. Strain drink into glass and add enough ice to fill glass. Garnish with pepper.

Makes 8 drinks.
