Cocktail: Guava Jalapeno Margarita

Spice up any cocktail party with our hot and tangy margarita recipe.

Guava juice and jalapeno peppers are the secret to keeping any fiesta from turning into a siesta.

  • 3 jalapeno chilies
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons lime juice (from about 5 limes), plus extra wedges for rims, optional
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur (recommended: Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
  • 3 tablespoons guava juice
  • Coarse salt or margarita salt

Put 2 jalapenos into a small bowl and top with 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons tequila. Cover and refrigerate for a day.

Pour the spicy tequila into a pitcher and add 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons chilled lime juice, the orange liqueur, and the guava juice. Refrigerate again until chilled.

Put salt into a small plate and use lime wedge to moisten the rims of margarita glasses.

Halve, remove the seeds, and thinly slice the third jalapeno. Garnish each glass with 1 slice.

Pour the chilled margarita mixture into the glasses. Serve.
