The Jalepeno’s Revenge is a margarita variation featuring strong notes of jalapeno with blood orange. The flavors here are rich and intense as well as spicy.
Even though this is a cold drink, there’s something warming about the blend of spicy, sweet and tangy.
Be aware you have to infuse the tequila in advance, so set aside 2-4 hours for that.

- 4 ounces Jalapeno-infused Cuervo Silver
- 3 ounces blood orange juice
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 2 ounces orange liqueur
Put a jalapeno pepper in the Cuervo Silver tequila and let it steep for 2-4 hours (the longer, the spicier). Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all the ingredients to it. Shake well and strain into a salt-rimmed glass. Optionally garnish with orange and/or jalapenos.
