Phillip's Passion Wings (Dama Tequila)
Prepare the wings: Preheat the oven to 350° F. Season with salt and pepper then arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Cook until just brown and crisp, about 45 minutes
Make the sauce:
Combine the lime zest and the passion fruit juice, Dama Tequila, agave syrup, cayenne pepper, cumin, adobo sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 tablespoon pepper in a bowl. Pour over the warm wings let it marinate at least 30 minutes.
Preheat a grill to high. Grill the wings until marked, 10-15 minutes turning as needed. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan and cook until slightly thickened about 8 minutes (you can do this on the grill as well). Drizzle the wings with the sauce and top with chopped mint leaves.
