You’ve officially entered chile territory. New Mexico’s dry desert climate has cultivated a vast range of chile pepper varieties, but none so popular as the crisp green chile. Subtly sweet, spicy and smoky, New Mexico’s green chile provides the bold flavor base for this reposado tequila cocktail from The Secreto Lounge in Santa Fe, with black grapes, lime juice and agave nectar.
