A jalapeno margarita recipe made with jalapeno-infused tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice, and agave nectar. Tasty, spicy, and refreshing.

We were contacted just before the New Year by a company called Tanteo Spirits LLC. They produce a tequila that is infused with jalapeno peppers and wanted to know if we would like to sample the product.

Um, yeah!

Given our current tropical locale, the tequila was perfect for experimentation.

Patty is an awesome mixologist and prepared this particular recipe, which we enjoyed by the pool.

Quite delicious!

It’s hard to go wrong with a margarita, though.

About Tanteo Tequila

We think you’ll enjoy Tanteo, the jalapeño infused tequila. When you first open the bottle, you’re greeted with the aroma of fresh cut jalapeno peppers and that distinctive tequila blast.

The flavor of the jalapeno peppers is just as fresh and it really stands out against the citrus.

Patty brought along her juicer and made a delicious blend of citrus fruits we picked up from the local farmers market this weekend – lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit.

We’re fortunate to have all this fresh fruit on hand right now.

Let’s mix up some margaritas, shall we? It’s extremely easy. No need to make a simple syrup. It’s all mixing, shaking and pouring.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 2 ounces silver tequila (or use Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila for more pronounced jalapeno flavor)
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice – about 2 small limes. Be sure to use fresh lime juice! Not bottled.
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • FOR SERVING
  • Extra jalapeno slices
  • Lime wedges
  • Salt and lime wedge to rim the glass

Jalapeno Margarita Recipe – Let’s Make It!

First, combine the tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and jalapeno slices in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice. Shake vigorously. Give it a good 30 seconds of shaking to really infused that tequila. Shake longer if you’d like even more flavor.

Fill the margarita glass with ice to chill it. Discard the ice.

Rub a lime wedge around the top of your margarita glass, then dip it into salt. The lime juice will help the salt stick. It helps to pour the salt into a small plate first, then dip the glass.

Strain the liquid into the margarita glass.

Garnish with a lime wedge and extra jalapeño slices, if desired.

Great for Cinco de Mayo!
