Jalapeño Margarita

by Anastasia Hartleib
Jalapeño Margarita

The jalapeño margarita is a modern interpretation of the classic margarita cocktail. Unlike the original, the jalapeño margarita is a more recent creation that has emerged from the trend of adding spice to cocktails.

Did you already know? The word "jalapeño" comes from the Spanish and means "from Xalapa". Xalapa is a city in Mexico that is known for its hot and spicy chili peppers. This is where the fiery chili variety gets its name from.

Determine the heat level of your cocktail yourself

The intensity of the spiciness can be adjusted individually. Some bartenders puree or muddle the jalapeño for a milder heat, while others shake it with the seeds and peel to create an extra kick.

Many jalapeño margaritas are served with a chili-salt rim to enhance the flavor. If the jalapeño heat in the drink is already enough for you, you can simply omit the chili powder and serve the cocktail with just a salt rim.
