Smoky Habanero Margarita

"Daveed Diggs created this smoky and spicy twist on a margarita as his entry for our Ultimate Margarita Showdown competition where he was challenged by Andy Cohen."

This recipe comes directly from Cointreau - which is a brand of orange-flavoured triple sec liqueur produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou, France. It is consumed as an apéritif and digestif, and is a component of several well-known cocktails. Although the bottle is amber colored, the liqueur is actually colorless

Recommended glassware: Highball or Rocks glass.
