Tips & Tricks to Make the Best Spicy Jalapeño Margarita.
Use a good quality tequila. If tequila is not your jam, you can make this recipe with vodka. It works just as well.
If you want a salted rim, salt that rim. If you are a real heat person, rub the rim with the edge of a cut Jalapeño then dip your glass in salt. If the heat in the cocktail is enough for you, run the fresh cut side of a lime along the rim and then dip your glass in your salt.
Salt rim tip: Use kosher salt, sea salt, or margarita salt. Place your salt on a small plate slightly wider than the width of your glass.
Use fresh squeezed juice from fresh produce. Do not use pre-juiced products, the quality of your cocktail will suffer. The fresh juice really is an all-star in this recipe.
