Jalapeno Margarita Recipe

Happy Hour: Jalapeño Margarita

This is the perfect drink for someone who tends to sway toward more savory drinks, like salty dogs or balsamic bloody Marys.

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.

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.
