Its queso might have gotten off to a notoriously shaky start, but that hasn't stopped Chipotle from trying out a whole slew of new menu items at its NEXT test kitchen in NYC.

According to Food & Wine, the company is testing out a drink it's dubbing the Frozen Paloma Margarita. While typically Palomas and margaritas are separate cocktails, the chain is combining the two into a slushie made with grapefruit, agave nectar and Sauza tequila.
