Jalapeno infused tequila cocktail

Hey guys. Here’s to Friday. We have a fabulously spicy jalapeno infused tequila cocktail recipe for you to try this weekend. It’s a quick and easy prep and you’ll feel like you’re on vacation when sipping it down.

Here’s what you’ll need for the jalapeno infused tequila:

  • Small mason jar
  • Fave tequila- we recommend Espolon Tequila Blanco
  • 2-3 slices of lime
  • 1 jalapeno

And here’s what you’ll need to turn it into a delicious cocktail:

  • 2 oz of (non-jalapeno) tequila
  • 1 oz of your freshly homemade jalapeno infused tequila
  • 1 oz orange liquor – we recommend Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur
  • Couple drops of agave nectar
  • 1.5 oz lime juice

Jalapeno Infused Tequila

Start by cutting up your jalapeno into slices. You only need 4 slices of jalapeno per small mason jar. Remove the majority of the seeds from each slice – a little really goes a long way.  Fill the mason jar with tequila, then put in your jalapeno slices and 2-3 slices of lime. Let that sit in the fridge for an hour.
