Jalapeño Mint Margeritas 

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. 


Jalapeño Mint Margerita

By:Bekie A

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


Directions:

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.
