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.
