Spicy Margarita Recipe
Everyone loves a margarita and sometimes you just need to change it up a bit with a new flavor combination. Our jalapeno margarita recipe does just that.
Jalapeno and cucumber are infused in a margarita mixture lending just the right amount of heat from the jalapeno, that builds at the end of each sip, balanced with the cool crisp flavor of the cucumber.

Corralejo Tequila is made in Hacienda Corrajelo in the Guanajuato region of Mexico, the perfect place for growing the famous Weber Blue Agave used in making tequila. These hand-harvested agave plants are slowly steam cooked in traditional stone clay ovens for twenty seven hours.
The agave then rests for twelve hours and then goes to the mill where the sweet juice is extracted and then goes on to fermentation. Each bottle is double-distilled in copper stills imported from Spain. Corralejo Tequila has a smooth, rich and natural flavor and distinct aroma due to the unique distillation method they use.
Known for its tall colorful bottles, Corralejo tequilas include Silver, Reposado and Añejo. It is believed that these bottles stand tall with pride!
Disclosure: I received the Corralejo Tequila for purposes of reviewing and recipe development. All opinions are my own.
