I tasted a jalapeño margerita at a local restaurant and fell in love. It was made fresh and sweetened with agave. I had to recreate it at home with my own Texas spin. Refreshing and light with a true Texas kick, you will be transported immediately to a beach somewhere. The cucumber and cilantro cool the heat and bite of the jalapeño. Bonus: this margerita isn’t filled with preservatives or tons of sugar. It is fresh and organic.
1 shot glass full of fresh lime juice
1/2 shot glass of fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp of agave syrup (or more if you like it sweet)
2-3 slices of cucumber
1-2 slices of fresh jalapeño (depending on heat level)
2-3 mint leaves
2 tbsp of fresh cilantro
2 shots of Triple Sec liquor
2 shots of clear Tequila
1 1/2 cups of ice
Pour the juices and fresh herbs into a pitcher. Add jalapeño and cucumber slices. Top with agave and ice.
Blend until slushy consistency. Pour into 3 large glasses garnished with salt, or 5-6 small glasses.
I love the specks of green. Beautiful!
Garnish glass with lime, a cucumber slice or jalapeño.
