Jalepeno's Revenge Margarita with orange and jalapeno garnish

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.
