Tirzah is one of my followers. She is very nice and was talking to me about a Jalapeno Margarita she had in a restaurant and how much she loved it. She asked me to make a recipe for one because she would like to make it at home. So here it is!
It is so delicious, a little spicy, a nice version of a margarita. I am so hooked on them that know I prefer it over a regular margarita!
Use good quality tequila. Better ingredients make better drinks! Use fresh lime juice and fresh jalapeno. Trust me, you are not going to regret it! I use agave syrup because it goes best with tequila, that comes out of agave. But you can use honey if you prefer. It works too.
Shake it with a handful of ice, garnish with a slice of jalapeno and lime and enjoy it!
This is an awesome margarita made with tequila that has been soaked in jalapenos! It is so good, you will have more than one!!
- 4 oz Tequila Good quality
- 2 oz Lime Juice fresh
- 2 oz Cointreau Or any Orange Liquor
- 1/2 tsp Agave syrup or Honey
- 1 Jalapeno pepper Fresh
- Ice cubes Handfull
Cut half the jalapeno pepper, remove stems and seeds and place in a jar with 4 oz of tequila. Muddle the jalapeno until they are soft and let sit covered in the jar for 20 to 25 minutes. If you prefer it stronger, leave the seeds and increase the time in the jar to 2 hours.
Once your tequila is infused with the jalapeno, mix in a shaker the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, agave syrup, and ice. Shake really well and pour in a margarita glass. Garnish with a slice of jalapeno and lime. Enjoy!
