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!
