A few years ago, I had my very first jalapeno margarita and I’ve been hooked ever since. If you like spicy, and margaritas, this cocktail recipe is for you! Fresh lime juice, fresh jalapenos, a salted rim….it’s truly perfection and perfect for a cinco de mayo party this weekend!
Easy, Simple Jalapeno Margarita Recipe
Time: ~3 minutes | Yield: 1 cocktail
2 shots of jalapeno tequila, or your favorite silver tequila for less spice (which is what I used!)
1 shot triple sec
2 tbsp Rose’s sweetened lime juice (found in the cocktail section of your grocery store)
A few slices of fresh jalapenos, with seeds, more for garnish
Squeeze of fresh lime and fresh lemon
- Muddle 1-2 slices of jalapeno in a cocktail shaker.
- Add all ingredients, except the margarita salt, to the shaker with a handful of ice.
- Shake all ingredients.
- To salt the glass rim, take a wedge of lime and run it around the rim, then dip in margarita salt. Margarita salt is also found in the cocktail section of your grocery store, but you can also use kosher salt!
- Pour into a glass over a few slices of jalapeno for garnish!
