  • Delicious and slow drinking because it's quite spicy. Initially a bit too sweet for me . 2:1:1 is more Margarita-like. Use very little Chipotle and don't muddle lest it be to spicy. — ★★★★★

I didn't think too much of it, I didn't find the chipotle particularly pleasing with the sweetness of the Licor 43—2 stars. I like the Margarilla much better, a very similar drink but with much less Licor 43 that let's the tequila make itself felt.
