We’re right on the cusp of grilling season here in Texas (well, every season is grilling season, but this is where we really start to walk the talk), and there’s no better barbecue weapon to keep in your arsenal than a great marinade. And one with tequila in it has our vote, hands-down!

As far as using tequila in a marinade goes, some will shutter at the thought. “What a waste of a good drink,” they might say. “Perish the thought,” my aunt Wahnny would say. Well, Wahn… we’re onto bigger and better things that include basting the best bird, shrimp, or flank steak with some of your top-shelf liquor that, I confess, I used to top-off with water after sampling while you were out at bingo. But I’ve shared a little too much there! This marinade recipe will make your barbecue sing like a con artist that’s been questioned at the county jail. And it complements any side you can produce! Shared by allrecipes.com, this delicious liquid love for your main is something you can’t do without!

Allrecipes.com shares the full ingredient list and preparation instructions for its Smokey Tequila-Lime Marinade at the link available here. It takes just 10 minutes to produce, and it’s best for chicken, seafood, or beef. Once you start dropping it like it’s hot at the barbecue, you may venture into desserts, drinks, and even hot sauce that’s made with tequila! There’s a vast array of great tastes to be had with the addition of this drink that’s generally reserved for high rollers or those with a sincere appetite for a good time. Cooking with it doesn’t leave you with a nasty hangover, but sampling it while you cook may have some repercussions we won’t be witness to (wink, wink). Follow the recipe. Love the marinade, and let us know when you’re ready to try something else new and exciting at your next barbecue!
