Chilli and Lime
Popcorn
  • Description:

    Aged for 8 months in American white-oak barrels, Don Julio Reposado Tequila offers a rich, smooth finish with aromas of mellow lemon and spice layers on the nose. Serve it chilled on the rocks with a fresh batch of lime and chilli popcorn to elevate the citrus and spice notes in this elegant tequila.

  • Ingredients:

    1 tbsp. (15 ml) vegetable oil
    ½ cup (125 ml) popcorn kernels

    2 tbsp. (30 ml) melted butter
    ½ tsp. (2,5 ml) chilli powder

    1 tbsp. (15 ml) lime zest
    1 tsp. (5 ml) Maldon Sea Salt

  • Method:

        •    Heat oil in a heavy-based pot until hot. Add popcorn kernels and cover with lid.
        •    Shake pot occasionally while popcorn is popping to prevent any burning.
        •    Once popping slows down, remove from heat and allow to stand for 30 seconds.
        •    Pour popcorn into a bowl and drizzle with the melted butter.
        •    Place the chilli powder, lime zest and salt into a small bowl and mix together.
        •    Sprinkle spiced salt over the popcorn and toss to coat.
