"Margaritas with a spicy kick! The agave nectar and fresh lime juice make a big difference. Include the jalapeno seeds for an extra kick!" — Matt D

limes, cut into wedges
Great suggestions by other reviewers. It's important to wet the rim of the glass with a cut lime before dipping in the salt. This is a must. If you've got any smoked salt on hand, use THAT! Off the hook! Also, if you don't mind sacrificing a small amount of tequila, you can do what I do. Slice a jalapeno in half then drop it, seeds and all, into a a bottle of tequila. Just let it sit in there, infuse, and make nice-nice. Then use this to make your drinks. Umm um um! Be warned, the longer it sits the hotter it gets, but man, what a flavor punch! I have made some award-winning drinks with this method. Cheers, Y'all!
ok so this sounds odd,but yet it gives a different taste i mean come on whos tired of the same margaritas!!!!! this took care of it & my thirsty friends!!!! ;)
You can also use a garlic press to squeeze jalapeno juice out of thick slices.
Did some work in the garden today and I have Jalapenos galore! Stumbled across this recipe and WOW what a great afternoon treat to beat the 90 degree heat! (hehehe I am a poet and didn't even know it). The Margarita was delicious-- I didn't have agave and used Sweet and Sour Mix with some Rose's Lime Juice. Very Good although I think I will try to muddle the jalapeno on the next batch. Thanks for a great recipe!
Minus the jalapeno we call these Skinny Rita's. I'm going to give this a try this evening. Lots of jalapeno's in my garden. I'll let you know. BTW I would use lime to moisten the rim of the glass.
This is delicious! Don't trust me, just try for yourself...who doesn't love sweet and spicy??
LOVED THEM. SO DID MY HUSBAND. WHEN SHAKED WITH SEEDLESS BUT FRESH JALAPENOS, YOU GET A NICE MILD SPICE. IF YOU WANT A MORE BURNING YOUR LIPS KIND OF DRINK, MUDDLE THE JALAPENOS A BIT IN THE SHAKER BEFORE ADDING OTHER INGREDIENTS. FIRE!
Yum!! Just the right amount of spice. Nice not to have a normal margarita!!
