nights in call for fun new drinks like these jalapeno margaritas! last weekend when trevor & i decided to stay in & watch Boyhood i wanted to whip up a new drink besides our usual wine & bourbon. i had picked up some fresh jalapenos that week since i use them in almost everything and was excited to try to infuse some tequila.
be warned it gets very spicy very quickly so let it sit for just a few hours and you can gradually add more spice as you like. add a yummy salt rim & some sweet agave nectar and you have a delicious cocktail! if i had some blood oranges or grapefruit on hand i would have totally added a fresh squeeze in to mine since i tend to like things on the sweeter side.
hope you can enjoy these soon & cheers to homemade happy hours!
4 oz tequila
2 oz triple sec
1 tbsp agave nectar
2 limes (fresh squeezed juice)
salt to rim
limes to garnish
*for a spicier kick put jalapenos in tequila and allow to sit for 1-2 hrs in fridge then combine
