Chipotle Tequila Colada

If you could distill a Mexican beach vacation into a drink, it might taste like this. In it we mix the smoky, sweet-n-spicy, barbecue flavors of Tanteo’s Chipotle infused tequila with a salted coconut syrup and a float of bittersweet Angostura amaro. If Don the Beachcomber had charted an expedition to Tulum instead of Polynesia, this is what he would have been drinking with his cochinita pibil.
