Big Batch Jalapeño Margarita
A simple, fresh margarita with a spicy note. I like to use Espolon brand blanco or silver tequila. Makes one cocktail.
Servings: 12 margaritas
- Tajin spice mix for glass rims regular salt is fine too
- 1/4 cup lime juice or water, for spiced rims
- 2 jalapeños, sliced thin
- 3 cups tequila silver or blanco
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 3 cups fresh lime juice
- 16 ounces sparkling water
Place about a tablespoon of Tajin in a flat dish and the lime juice on another flat dish.
Dip the rim of your glass in lime juice and then the Tajin.
In a pitcher, add the jalapeño slices and their seeds along with the tequila.
Let sit for 2 days or at least 6 hours at room temperature.
When ready to serve, add the agave nectar and lime juice to the pitcher and stir.
Serve over ice with a topper of sparkling water, about ¼ cup per glass.
Stir and enjoy!
