It's time to get Cinco de Mayo up in here. And what better way to prepare than with a margarita? There isn't any, is there?
This here margarita is special, you see. It's the perfect blend of sweet, salty, and spicy!
Here's the pretty fruits and veggies you'll need. Can we count this as healthy since there's fruits and veggies involved?
Yep, it's a Roasted Jalapeno Margarita!
Ever since I fell in love with this Cilantro Jalapeno Limeade I made last summer, I've been obsessed with the idea of jalapeno in my drinks to add that perfect little bit of spiciness. This margarita, no exception.
Roasted Jalapeno Margarita
from Food Network
- 1 jalapeno
- 3 ounces Homemade Sour Mix, recipe follows
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 lime, cut into wedges and/or slices
- salt for rim, if desired
In a cocktail shaker, add 2 (or more) slices roasted jalapeno, ice, Homemade Sour Mix, tequila, and juice of 1 lime wedge. Shake. Rim a glass with the wedge of a lime and dip in salt. Serve with ice. Garnish with lime slice and jalapeno slice.
Homemade Sour Mix
*Yields: 3 and 1/2 cups
- 1 and 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
*Note: You will not use all of the Homemade Sour Mix for one margarita, as the recipe for Homemade Sour Mix yields 28 ounces and you only need 3 ounces per margarita. You will have some leftover for more margaritas :)
Don't forget the salt for the rim! What's a margarita without the salt?
