The Story Behind The Jalapeño Margarita
A bit of spice can elevate any Margarita. It harmonizes with both the subtle sweetness of agave and the bright zestiness of orange liqueur. The Jalapeño Margarita offers a slightly fresher, more vegetal flavor profile than that of the Spicy Margarita, which is made with bird’s eye chili. The succulent taste of fresh jalapeño adds a nice kick to a classic Marg; the pepper’s freshness plays well with the earthiness of the tequila and makes for a lively riff on America’s favorite cocktail.
