  • 1.5 oz. silver tequila (or use Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila for more pronounced jalapeno flavor)
  • .5 ounce orange liquer
  • 4 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice - about 2 small limes
  • 1 teaspoon Agave Nectar (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper thinly sliced
  • FOR SERVING: Extra jalapeno slices, Lime wedges, Tajin seasoning + Salt and lime wedge to rim the glass


  • First, combine the tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and jalapeno slices in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Give it a good 30 seconds of shaking to really infused that tequila. Shake longer if you'd like even more flavor.
  • Rub a lime wedge around the top of your margarita glass. Pour the salt and tajin seasoning onto a small plate, then dip the glass into it to coat the rim. The lime juice will help the salt-tajin mixture stick. 
  • Strain the liquid into the margarita glass.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and extra jalapeno slices, if desired.


Heat Factor: Medium. You'll get a good spice level with the jalapeno peppers. Try it with a habanero for an extra spicy margarita!
