Hello loves, it’s me again! I’m back, but this time with something super delicious. For those of you who do not know me, I am actually a bartender in NYC. So, naturally I’m going to make sure that you guys get some yummy cocktails out of this deal, right? DUH! For my first cocktail on my blog, I couldn’t think of a more perfect choice than my favorite drink; a spicy margarita!
There are so many different variations of the spicy margarita and I’ve loved every one that I’ve tried so far. When it comes to making a drink at home, let’s be honest, the easier the better. So I put together the most simple, yet freaking yummy, spicy marg for you guys! Also, because of how simple it is, it keeps the calories very low. What more could you ask for?
WHAT YOU NEED: (ingredients)
Silver/Blanco Tequila (pick a favorite) I used Deleon but I also like Herradura and Patron
Organic agave nectar
Fruit juicer (handheld)
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
Step 1: Slice jalapeños into 1/4 inch slices and remove the seeds.
Step two: Add 3 slices of jalapeño and 3/4oz of agave syrup into your cocktail shaker.
Step three: Muddle the jalapeños and agave together with a wooden muddler if you have one. Full disclosure, I couldn’t find my muddler so I used the clean backend of a screw driver to muddle it!! I’m not even joking people, use what you’ve got (I told you this was easy.)
Step 4: Fill the shaker up with ice and add 1.5oz of tequila.
Step 5: Cut 2 limes in half and hand juice them into the cocktail shaker. If you don’t have a hand juicer just literally squeeze the juice out with your hand. It should create about 2oz of juice if you feel the desire to measure it.
Step 6: Shake it!!!!! The more you shake it, the better it tastes. Okay, not really, but make sure you shake it enough to get it super chilled.
Step 7: Pour ALL of the contents from the shaker into a glass of your choice. Then top with more ice if you need it.
NOW DRINK YOUR MASTERPIECE!!!
Obviously, you can make more than one at a time in the shaker (just double the ingredients.) Also, you can adjust the ingredients to your particular taste. For example, I don’t like mine as sweet as my husband does so I add a little less agave syrup to mine. I hope you all enjoy this spicy margarita as much as I do.
