Jalapeno Margarita Recipe

Happy Hour: Jalapeño Margarita

Why choose between green juice and a margarita when you can have both in a spicy-savory jalapeño margarita? This one's made with celery leaves and lime juice.

This is the perfect drink for someone who tends to sway toward more savory drinks, like salty dogs or balsamic bloody Marys. However, a sugar rim could tone down the spice and acidity, so feel free to sub that instead of the salt. Serve it in a pitcher to make it fit for a crowd. To look at this picante Margarita recipe,

For an extra punch of color and flavor, reserve the juiced limes and add them back into the pitcher before serving.

For a sweeter beverage, rim the glasses in sugar rather than salt.

Love margaritas, but I do not like jalapeno peppers at all.

I'm not much of a drinker. And if this was my first drink to try, then I would never have another one for a while. It doesn't sound that good.

This sounds like one intense drink...

Whoa, I really want to try this. The spiciness would make me drink slower, too. I never use sugar, though. I add a splash of oj instead.
