This is great on chicken or ribs. I decided to play around because I didn't care for the tequila lime recipe my husband was using, just tasted like way too much tequila to me.

Loved the flavor in this sauce! In the Test Kitchen we enjoyed it on wings (and they were gone in minutes!). I can't wait to use it on other meats though. I used apple juice and tequila in this recipe.
