A cocktail, with a little heat? ¡Sí, por favor! How do Jalapeño Margaritas sound? Well, if you like a little kick, you will be saying, “muchísimas gracias”! Because as soon as you have that first sip, you’re tastebuds will be prancing! Margaritas with a “Kick” have a refreshing citrus flavor with a spicy finale! Spicy has always been my favorite addition to most dishes! That’s probably why Mexican food is one of my all time favorite foods! Even in a cocktail!
My husband, Phil is our “resident” bartender. Often at someone else’s home or party, they ask for his mixological concoctions! He never disappoints! I knew he’d have something clever to add to go with our Mexican theme dinner. So with a few ingredients, he took the basic margarita up a notch!
“Taco Tuesdays” are a common thing at most Mexican restaurants. And for the past several years, “Taco Tuesdays” have also been a common thing at our house! Serving Carnitas or Fish Tacos with homemade salsa? Can you think of anything better than a Margaritas with a “Kick”? This is our weekly “bebida” alongside our Tuesday “comida”! Also, since our girls are adults now, it’s so much fun when they’re home and friends join the “fiesta”. Phil makes a larger batch, so there’s plenty on hand, ready for those needing a refill!
With a few jalapeño slices floating on top or muddled in the glass, or both, the flavors will keep you going…you won’t be needing a siesta! The added coating of Tajin clinging to the lime dampened rim, adds a little salty chili-ness to that final little kick! Giving it the perfect finish! So go ahead, make a pitcher! Certainly, you’ll eat to grab some chips & salsa and get the fiesta going!
