It’s party time!
Get out your sombrero and margarita glasses because Cinco de Mayo!
I wanted to come up with a margarita made with less sugar. None of that thick syrupy stuff. Just a refreshing flavor with fresh squeezed grapefruit and lime and a hint of heat. Spice it up, literally!
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.
