When the sweetness of agave is combined with the heat of chili pepper, the result immediately appeals to the palate. These serrano peppers from Puebla are slightly hotter than jalapeños, but they add a hint of excitement to the passionfruit puree and lime juice. Chili pepper always works with our Reposado, bringing out the earthy, peppery notes of the tequila.
