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.

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.
