“Some like it hot, and some sweat when the heat is on…” not sure why that song by PowerStation popped into my head. I think it might have had something to do with the intense heat flowing through my entire face after taking a sip of this blended jalapeno margarita. Now, if I can just remember not to rub my eye again after slicing jalapenos I’ll be doing OK.
- 3 oz tequila
- thin slices of japaleno pepper
- 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tbsp simply syrup
- 6 celery leaves
- 1 oz triple sec
- 1/4 tbsp agave nectar
Moisten the rim of a martini glass with a wedge of lime. Add coarse salt to a small plate and turn the rim of the martini glass to create a salt & chili rim. add the slices of jalapeno to the blender, add lime juice, simple syrup and the celery leaves – pulse until the pieces are chopped. Add triple sec, agave nectar and tequila and blend until smooth. Strain into the martini glass and garnish with the rest of the jalapeno pepper.
