Tequila Lime Sauce

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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.
