Margarita Marinade

Photo: Thomas J. Story; Styling: Dan Becker
Yield Makes 1 3/4 cups, enough for 2 lbs. chicken wings
Just like the cocktail it's named for, this easy marinade is a four-ingredient flavor explosion of tart, sweet, and salty all rolled up into one. Here it's used to jazz up chicken wings, but it works wonders for flank steak, grilled pork, and chicken thighs too.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 3/4 cup triple sec
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. In a bowl, whisk together tequila and triple sec. Stir in lime juice and salt. Stir until salt dissolves.
