Cinco De Mayo spicy Margarita Recipe two ways


In honor of Cinco de Mayo next week, I am sharing with you two versions of the perfect spicy margarita recipe. I'm sure many of you know that I was a bartender for years and years, but what you may not know is that my favorite drinks to make were an old fashioned and a spicy margarita. Maybe it was because I also liked drinking them, but for some reason I loved when someone ordered one of those drinks. Over the years, I have perfected the art of making a killer spicy margarita and I am going to show you two easy and delicious versions that you can make to have a festive cinco de mayo.


Spicy Margarita


Ingredients:

  • 2oz silver tequila (I like cas amigos)

  • 2 tsp lime juice

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 tsp fresh orange juice

  • 4 slices of jalapenos

  • Lime wedge

  • Salt for the rim


Directions:

  • Muddle jalapeno in the bottom of a shaker

  • Fill shaker with ice and add tequila, lime juice, honey, and oj

  • Shake vigorously

  • Rub the rim of a glass with lime wedge to create a wet rim

  • Place the glass upside down in a dish of salt and roll around until salt sticks to the rim

  • Dump contents of shaker into the salt rimmed glass


Spicy Mango Margarita


Ingredients:

  • 2 oz silver tequila

  • 2 tbsp mango puree

  • 1 tsp lime juice

  • 4 slices of jalapenos

  • Lime wedge

  • Salt for the rim


Directions:

  • Blend frozen mangos with some water until smooth

  • Muddle jalapeno in the bottom of a shaker

  • Fill shaker with ice and add tequila, mango puree, and lime juice

  • Shake vigorously

  • Rub the rim of a glass with lime wedge to create a wet rim

  • Place the glass upside down in a dish of salt and roll around until salt sticks to the rim

  • Dump contents of shaker into the salt rimmed glass


You can also make a virgin version of both of these drinks by taking out the tequila, following all the above steps and after shaking all the other ingredients top it off with club soda. Throw yourself a little fiesta and enjoy this drink with friends, or just enjoy it whenever you're in the mood for something delicious and refreshing. Bon Appetit!
