This Frozen Jalapeño Margarita recipe was made for relaxing in the sunshine and enjoying life. It is mildly spicy yet incredibly light and refreshing.
- 1 jalapeño , (see note 1)
- 1 1/2 ounces silver tequila, or 3 Tbsp.
- 1/2 ounce triple sec, or 1 Tbsp.
- 1 ounce lime juice, or 2 Tbsp.
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 cup ice, (see note 2)
- sugar or salt for the rim, (see note 3)
- lime wedges
- lime zest
- jalapeño slices
Prep Jalapeño: Use a knife to remove the stems and seeds from the jalapeño.
Blend: Put all Margarita Ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (see note 2).
Serve: Rim a glass with sugar or salt (see note 4). Pour the frozen jalapeño margarita into the glass and garnish with jalapeño slices, lime wedges, and/or lime zest (optional). Enjoy!
Note 1 - Jalapeño: The spice level of this margarita is very mild. It is primarily refreshing with a very slight jalapeño taste. If you wish to add more heat, simply keep some of the jalapeño seeds in the jalapeño in step 1 and add to the blender is step 2. The seeds contain a lot more heat than the jalapeño itself.
Note 2 - Ice & Blending: High powered blenders shouldn't have any issues blending ice. However, if you don't have a high powered blender, smaller ice cubes or crushed ice is easier to blend. You can also pulse your blender 5-10 times to help get it started.
Note 3 - Salt or Sugar: You can use sugar or salt to rim the glasses. I have tried it both ways and both were good. However, I personally thought sugar was slightly better as it enhanced the flavors in this particular margarita recipe.
Note 4 - Rim Glass: To rim a glass, use a lime wedge to wet the rim. Then flip the glass upside down and dip the rim in sugar or salt.
