Thursdays rule. Why? Because that’s Ladies Night over at The Slow Roasted Italian. Each week there’s a new cocktail, lots of them classics with a new twist. I know that sounds so familiar…. hmm. Oh and Donna and Chad are a dynamic blogging duo. Wait a minute!
Anyway, their Puckered Jalapeno Frozen Margarita inspired this drink. They soaked their jalapenos longer and in less liquid. We just can’t take the heat; we should get out of the kitchen. Or else our jalapenos are just way higher on that scale we’re not going to bother googling now.
- 2 parts jalapeno-infused tequila (instructions below)
- 1 part triple sec
- 4 parts lime juice
- 1/2 part simple syrup
Slice a fresh jalapeno or two or 50. Soak each jalapeno in about 4-6 ounces of tequila for at least two hours. (Longer is fine TSRI soaked theirs for a day!) Taste after two hours and decide whether you can take it hotter. Strain tequila reserving some pepper slices for garnish. Combine tequila and remaining ingredients in a margarita glass with ice.
