Jalapeno Margarita Recipe [easy and delicious drink idea]


To celebrate Mexican Independence day or any day enjoy this Jalapeño Margarita!

Warning: This is pretty spicy, so make at your own risk. I found a recipe online for Jalapeno magaritas. Although it said to steep the jalapeno for 3 days, it was extremely spicy. I recommend steeping for only 1 day. One other change to the recipe was the substitution of triple sec in place of orange liqueur. The orange liqueur was more expensive, so I went for triple sec instead.
