Skinny Sexy Cocktails- Not so very Margarita! (But delicious!)

I love a good Margarita, but they usually have a bit more sugar in them than I'd usually like. What I discovered is that mostly I love the tequila, so I decided to make one that was a bit more to my taste! What I came up with is easy, healthy (er) and really refreshing. All you need are a few simple ingredients, most of which you already probably have on hand! It's hardly original (except for a few additions!), but it's really very good!

To begin you'll need a martini shaker.  Then you'll need a slice of an orange, complete with a peel and several fresh genovese basil leaves and several mint leaves. Put them in the bottom of the shaker and muddle them with a tablespoon of agave nectar. (More if you like it sweeter!) To this shaker you'll add about 5 ice cubes, the juice of one fresh lime , a shake or two of ancho chile powder , a dash of green chili sauce ( or jalapeno tabasco ) and a couple of jiggers of your favorite tequila or mezcal. Shake hard for about a minute and then strain into an old fashioned rocks glass or margarita glass that you've rimmed with chili salt. Garnish with a spear of cucumber and a slice of orange! These go down easily...so enjoy-them  safely!
