Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
1/2 cup blue agave tequila
1/2 cup untoasted walnut oil
1/2 cup honey
2 - 3 limes (1 tsp. finely shredded peel plus 1/4 cup juice)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Optional add-ins: 2 cloves garlic, minced; 1/2 tsp. ground cumin; 2 shallots, minced
12 chicken drumsticks
Lime and/or orange slices
Place drumsticks in a self-sealing plastic bag set in shallow dish. Add marinade; seal. Refrigerate 4 to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Drain; discard marinade.
For charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around drip pan. Grill drumsticks 50 to 60 minutes over drip pan, covered, until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F), turning once halfway. (For gas, heat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Grill as above.) Makes 6 servings.
