White wine instead of tequila?

jmcarthur8 | Oct 17, 2010 05:18 AM

While making a tequila-lime chicken dish yesterday, I used white wine in place of the tequila. I don't drink, for health reasons, but I do use wine in cooking.
What I am wondering is, does the white wine make a good substitute for the flavor nuances that the 3 tablespoons of tequila would have provided? It's been so long since I've tasted tequila, I can't recall the flavor at all!
Is there some herb or particular type of wine that would give the right flavor? As it was, the dish was delicious, but would it have been improved by something other than the Reisling I used?
