    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/4 cup fresh orange juice

    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
    Lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Preheat the broiler. In a glass bowl, mix the 1/4 cup Juicy Margarita (reserve the rest for another use or enjoy over ice as a cocktail), oil and chipotle. Season with salt and pepper, add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  3. Drain the shrimp and arrange them on a baking sheet. Broil the shrimp as close to the heat as possible for 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until opaque and cooked through. Put 2 shrimp on each of 16 skewers and serve warm or at room temperature with lime wedges.
