Jalapeno Mint Margarita
A simple, fresh margarita with a spicy note. If you want to tone down the jalapeno flavor, use a good quality tequila blanco and muddle two thin slices of fresh jalapeno with the mint.

Himalayan pink salt or kosher salt
fresh mint leaves
such as Tanteo
Put about a tablespoon of salt in a flat dish. Rub the rim of your glass with one lime wedge and dip the rim of the glass in the salt. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker, add the mint, tequila, agave nectar and lime juice and a handful of ice. Shake very well to combine.
Fill your cocktail glass with ice and pour the mixed margarita into the glass. Put the second lime wedge on the edge of the glass.
