I was actually surprised at how much I love the jalapeno! I am a little bit of a wimp when it comes to spicy, but I seriously love these. The heat comes from chopped jalapeno and seeds infused in the tequila for just 30 minutes.  

This margarita recipe is made on the rocks with a salted rim. You can blend them if you prefer. The recipe measurements are for just one margarita so multiply that if you have a party!

I use La Croix sparkling water to give it a little fizz and more lime flavor without adding any sugar or calories.
