Tequila Battered Onion Rings with Honey Lime Yogurt Sauce

There is a whooooole lot of tequila in the batter of these onions rings.

Ingredients
For the Onion Rings:
  • 1 onion, sliced and separated into rings about ⅓? thick
  • 3 cups milk
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Tequila
For the Tequila Batter:
  • ½ cup tequila
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups flour
For the Honey Lime Yogurt Sauce:
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt (substitute regular plain yogurt if you’re not into the tangy-ness of the greek stuff)
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
For Frying:
  • 6 cups vegetable or canola oil

Instructions

For the Onion Rings:
  1. Stir together the milk, apple cider vinegar, and tequila in a large bowl to form a buttermilk-like mixture.
  2. Submerge the sliced and separated onion rings in the buttermilk mixture and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (I like to pop them in the fridge while I get the rest of the stuff ready and heat the oil, but you could leave them in for several hours if you’re making them in advance).
For the Tequila Batter:
  1. Whisk tequila, milk, salt, and 1 cup of the flour together to form a batter. Set aside.
  2. Place the remaining 1 cup flour on a large plate or platter and set aside.
