How To Make a Margarita That Packs Heat

Fresh to Death

That’s the jalapeño margarita made in this segment of Happy Hour with Rey. Each ingredient should be FRESH in this tasty tequila concoction, from running a jalapeño through a juice extractor to making your own sour mix. Fresh sour mix is easier than you think: uno, dos, tres — just mix sugar, water, and limes. When it comes to limes, Rey says softer is better — soft limes have more juice than hard limes. Next, take 100% Blue Agave tequila, pour into a shaker and count to four. Shake with the fresh sour mix, jalapeño juice, and pour into your glass. Top with a splash of orange liqueur and you’ve got Mexican mixology at its best. #TacoTuesday will never be the same. ¡Salud!
