This Spicy Jalapeño Margarita is super easy to make at home and is absolutely delicious!
You can use blanco or reposado tequila. Reposado is tequila that has been aged in oak whiskey barrels while blanco is distilled and bottled immediately. I prefer blanco for my margarita recipes, but it’s personal preference. You want a high-quality tequila that is 100% agave with no fillers or other ingredients.
We leave the seeds in the slices when muddling the jalapeño. If you want a little less heat, take some out.
It makes it look awesome, but will increase the spiciness. And if those seeds touch your lips you’ll feel the fire! Ask me how I know.
