Red Chile–Guava Margarita

This tropical, spicy margarita was created at Public in New York City, but it’s a fitting way to beat the heat any time the mercury’s rising.

What to buy: Guava nectar is available in health food stores and Latin groceries. You can also get it online.

Game plan: The “Red Chile” in this drink’s name comes from homemade Chile-Infused Tequila. Be sure you make it a couple of days in advance to get that spicy kick this cocktail deserves.

This recipe was featured as part of our Cinco de Mayo cocktail menu.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine tequila, Triple Sec, guava nectar, orange juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and reserve in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. 2To serve, rim a rocks glass with salt by rubbing a lime wedge around the outside and then dipping the glass in salt. Fill the glass with ice, add the margarita mixture, and garnish with a skewered chile pepper (if using).
