Jalapeño Margarita

My boy, ROF, is the best drink maker, I guess you’d call that a bartender. You can watch all his drink videos here.

Here is his video and the recipe follows. This is from a couple of years ago when we lived in Dallas. So it is Dallas approved!

ONE BATCH FOR FOUR:

6 Limes – juice them. Have more for garnish

1 cup Jalapeno simple syrup – recipe follows

1 cup Cointreau liquor – orange-flavored liqueur

1 cup Herradura tequila – or any tequila

Pour all into a large pitcher and stir. Pour into four glasses filled with ice and garnished with a lime.

Jalapeno Simple Syrup Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 fresh jalapeño peppers (washed and stemmed)

Make it:

  • Add the sugar and water to a saucepan over medium-high heat and stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved
  • Slice jalapeños lengthwise and add to the pan
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently
  • Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer, and simmer for three minutes
  • Remove from heat and let it steep for 20 minutes
  • Strain to remove all of the pepper

Enjoy! Let me know if you make these! Happy Labor Day!
