Story behind the recipe:

We have partnered with Ghost Tequila! They gave us a challenge to make something with their deliciously spicy tequila that would be unique and made for the brave! We thought what better way to use it than in a pilled pulled pork sandwich.

Ghost Tequila is filled with sassy spice and powerful taste (but don't worry, our pork isn't very spicy). They make high quality agave tequila that is award winning! Their site says, "Ghost Tequila is produced in small batches, marrying old world techniques with modern ingenuity, using a pinch of pepper heat to create a perfectly balanced, spicy spirit." They spare no details about their process and we just love that they're so transparent and proud about their process and ingredients.

You know when you were a kid and everyone dared each other to eat Warheads and other sour candies that made you feel like your face was gonna fall off? Well here's a fun adult version only with spice! Bring to a party and dare each other to be brave while you have a spice off! Or you can just use this regularly in a drink and have a slight kick. All fun ways to enjoy a drink and party to go along with this killer sandwich recipe.
