Like most of the recipes on my blog, it’s another original recipe that we whipped up because of our darn cravings! I’ve been on the hunt for a Mango Margarita on the rocks, so much so, that I went out of my way to try a spicy pineapple marg that was slightly disappointing.

So, that night after the kids went to bed, my husband whipped up this drink for me and after making it a couple different ways, I was hooked on this version. It’s the spicy margarita recipe of my dreams, and hope it’s for you as well.

If you enjoy a slightly spicy, but not over the top drink, then this is definitely your drink. If you prefer it to be extremely spicy, then dare add another slice of jalapeno to the mix!

What does a jalapeno margarita taste like?

This drink has a little kick without being too overpowering. It’s a sweet, spicy, and fruity margarita. Just what you need on a Friday night, or Sunday afternoon!

How to make a margarita spicy?

To make spicy, pour your drink with a couple slices of jalapenos (seeds and all) in a cocktail shaker and shake for 20 seconds. That’s all, no blending needed! This spicy margarita is so easy and so good!
