Most of the alcohol in the margarita glaze will evaporate during the cooking process, but if you prefer to cook without it you can substitute 1/4 cup of water.

  • 24 chicken wing pieces
  • ¼ cup tequila
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 orange juiced
  • 1 lemon juiced

coarse sea salt

  • Hot sauce like Tabasco or Cholula for serving, if desired


  • Heat oven to 450ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil and set a baking rack on top.
  • Sprinkle the chicken wings with a little salt and arrange skin-side up on the baking rack. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring the tequila, honey, and juices to a simmer. Let simmer 10 minutes.
  • Brush about half of the glaze onto the wings; cook another 10 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with remaining glaze. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
  • Serve with hot sauce, if desired.
