Margarita with Jalapeno-Infused Tequila Recipe

Margarita with Jalapeno-Infused Tequila

  • 1 1/2 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces triple sec
  • Lime slices for garnish
  • Salt (if desired)
  • Ice

Cooking Directions

  1. Fill a large drink shaker with ice.

Jalapeno-Infused Tequila

  • 1 cup tequila
  • 2 large jalapeno peppers


  1. Slice the jalapenos into rings and add them to a container with a lid.
  2. Add tequila and seal. Shake well.
  3. Let set for 4 hours - less time for a milder jalapeno flavor, longer for a stronger flavor. The jalapeno peppers will infuse the tequila with their wonderful spiciness.
  4. Strain the tequila to remove the jalapeno peppers and use as needed above.
  5. Enjoy!
