I love a good margarita! I’ve gone to this local Mexican restaurant where they served up a spicy jalapeño margarita and it was to die for! If you don’t like a little spice this might not be the recipe for you! You can really adjust the level of heat. I’ll explain how in the recipe below. Yum! Cheers
Spicy Jalapeño Margarita
1 oz orange liquor (Cointreau or Triple Sec)
1 oz lime juice
2 oz tequila
2-4 slices jalapeño (with seeds)
1 slice lime for garnish
1/2 cup ice
Directions: If making on the rocks, add in the orange liquor, lime juice, tequila and sliced jalapeño to a shaker. Shake up vigorously. Slide lime around the rim of the margaritas glass. In a shallow bowl or plate add in the salt. Flip over the glass and turn in the salt. Add ice to the glass and pour in margarita. Add a lime wedge and enjoy.
If you want to make it slightly frozen and spicier. You can add orange liquor, lime juice, tequila and jalapeño to a blender with ice. Pulse about 4-5 times. Add to salted rim glass and enjoy. Note. This will make it way spicer as the jalapeño are completely chopped.
If want to make a pitcher just multiple this recipe by how many guest you have. Great to make ahead of time with no ice. Add ice when ready to serve or put in blender.
