Today is International Margarita Day, so you know I had to put out a new margarita recipe for you to try! This recipe is specifically for those of you who love all things spicy! This spicy Jalapeño Margarita really adds a punch to your favorite summer cocktail.

If you are not a fan of spicy, don’t worry! One great thing about this recipe is that you control how much jalapeño you want in your drink. If you watch the video you see that I add in a whole jalapeno; however, if you are wanting only a hint of spice I would recommend adding about ¼ of one for more of a mild beverage.

How to Make a Jalapeno Margarita

Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.

Pour all of your ingredients into a cocktail shaker over ice.

Add in the amount of jalapeno you want into your cocktail shaker. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker I recommend this one from Amazon.

Shake it up! Note: The longer you shake the more time the jalapeno has to be infused into the cocktail and therefore the spicier it will be!

Finally, pour into your favorite cocktail glass with ice and add lime wedges and jalapeño slices as a garnish if you like!
