Margarita Marinade

Photo: Thomas J. Story; Styling: Dan Becker

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.

This recipe goes with Margarita Chicken Wings

Yield: Makes 1 3/4 cups, enough for 2 lbs. chicken wings
