Chipotle Mango Margarita

Food memories are always strongly associated with travel and this unique Chipotle Mango Margarita at sunset on the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado will be a highlight for me. The version at the resort includes a house-made chipotle syrup of simmered New Mexican Hatch red chilies, garlic, onion, chipotle and honey lending a commanding, earthy flavor to the cocktail. I’ve changed it a bit to ensure the cocktail can be made at home no matter where you are! It is a wonderful combination of sweet, tart, smoky flavors that is unique to any margarita you’ve enjoyed!
