Spicy Margarita {Olé!}


Whenever I go out to dinner my go-to cocktail is a margarita on the rocks with salt. My favorite is the traditional margarita {preferably the Cadillac}, cause every time I've ventured out trying different flavored margaritas, I almost always get disappointed and often end up ordering the traditional version. But about a month or so ago, the hubby ordered a spicy jalapeno version that was on this particular restaurant's menu, which I tasted and liked it...a lot, I might add. I thought this spicy variation would be a great refreshing change to my traditional favorite for the summer months. I decided to try making it at home following this previous recipe and added 1 sliced jalapeno in it. It's best to let it sit for about fifteen to thirty minutes, so the jalapeno pepper can have time to infused the margarita. It's definitely a great recipe that can be made way ahead of time. I mixed a dash of cayenne pepper in the salt and ran the glass rims in the salt mix for a lovely hint of red and a little hint of spice. We both were very pleased at how it turned out. Very smooth, right amount of tartness, not too sweet with a little surprise of spiciness. Yum! My mouth is watering as I type this.


Buen provecho!
