This Spicy Jalapeño Margarita is as easy to make as it is to drink! It uses only 3 simple ingredients and a memorable recipe portion of 2-1-1.
Is it weird to say that something that brings this amount of heat is refreshing?
Similar to my 5 Spice Bourbon Cocktail recipe, the secret to this cocktail is making your own simple syrup!
Traditional simple syrup is made by adding equal parts sugar and water to a saucepan over medium heat, and stirring until the sugar is fully dissolved. But for this recipe, throw in an additional jalapeño! Not only will this add spice, but a savory quality to your drink!
For the Cocktail you will need:
-2 parts tequila (2 oz)
-1 part fresh lime juice (1 oz)
-1 part Jalapeño simple syrup (1 oz)
– Salt to rim the glass
-Jalapeño & lime wedge to garnish
Before mixing your ingredients, rim the glass of your choice with salt! (You can even add Tajín for an extra kick!)
In your cocktail shaker pour your 2-1-1 recipe! 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce fresh lime juice, and 1 ounce your homemade Jalapeño simple syrup! Shake, strain into your salt rimmed glass with ice, and garnish with a lime wedge and sliced jalapeños.
Craving extra spice? You can always muddle additional jalapeño peppers in your shaker to add that extra kick!
