Dried Chile Pepper Tequila Infusion Recipe

Is tequila a little too tame for you? Then you'll love this spiced up version! It takes on a spicy, fruity, smokey flavor that is a great way to add complexity to different cocktails. I really like it in a paloma or Bloody Mary. I give my recommendations for what chile peppers to use but you can substitute any you have on hand. If you prefer a spicier tequila you can add more chipotle peppers, or upgrade to something further along the Scoville scale.
