Spicy Jalapeño Margarita

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
coarse salt
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.

Watermelon Vodka Slushie

I’m not a big at home drinker as I usually like vodka as my drink of choice! But for the first time I decided to make a drink during this quarantine! I made this super fun Watermelon Vodka Slushie!

Who doesn’t love watermelon and slushies? I know I do!!  So I put this together rather quickly.  I had just got a delicious sweet watermelon from my grocery deliveries!   Take a look if you want to enjoy a nice light, alcoholic slushie!

Watermelon Vodka Slushie


1.5 cups watermelon chunks, frozen
1/2 lime, juiced
2 slices of lime
1/2 can of Sprite, 7-Up or Sierra Mist ( I used diet sprite, less sweet)
1/2 cup vodka (more or less to your taste)
1-2 cup of ice, cubes or crushed (depending on how slushie like you want it)

Direction:  Add the watermelon chunks to the freezer to let them freeze or at least get frosty.  Remove from the freezer and put in a blender.  Add in the ice, vodka, lime juice, and soda.  Blend till a slushie like consistency.  Pour into a glass, finish off with a squeeze of lime juice (optional).  Add lime wedge to the side of the glass and enjoy!
