Jalapeño Margarita Recipe

Jalapeno Margarita

Turn up the heat on your Cinco De Mayo and add a kick to your margarita recipe.  The jalapeño margarita is my new housewife cocktail of the summer.  The perfect blend of lime and sweetness married with a hint of heat on the palette.

Jalapeño Margarita

  • 3 – 6 slices jalapeño
  • 2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 oz orange liquor (I prefer Grand Marnier® or Cointreau®)
  • 2 oz agave nectar
  • 4 oz (I prefer Hornitos® – 100% agave tequila, Don Julio, or Tres Generaciones®)

Muddle the jalapeño slices, then pour lime juice, orange liquor, agave nectar, and tequila into cocktail shaker.  Top with crushed ice and shake vigorously.  Salt the rim of a margarita glass and serve cocktail with a garnish of fresh lime wedge or jalapeño slice.

*Agave nectar is a great sweetener for cocktails because it mixes with cold beverages, unlike honey.
*You can substitute fresh lime juice with Nellie and Joe’s Key West Lime Juice found at your local grocery store.
