Jalapeno Margaritas Reviews

  • You can also use a garlic press to squeeze jalapeno juice out of thick slices.

  • Ok so this sounds odd,but yet it gives a different taste i mean come on whos tired of the same margaritas this took care of it & my thirsty friends ;)

  • Did some work in the garden today and I have Jalapenos galore Stumbled across this recipe and WOW what a great afternoon treat to beat the 90 degree heat (hehehe I am a poet and didnt even know it). The Margarita was delicious-- I didnt have agave and used Sweet and Sour Mix with some Roses Lime Juice. Very Good although I think I will try to muddle the jalapeno on the next batch. Thanks for a great recipe

  • Minus the jalapeno we call these Skinny Ritas. Im going to give this a try this evening. Lots of jalapenos in my garden. Ill let you know. BTW I would use lime to moisten the rim of the glass.

  • This is delicious Dont trust me, just try for yourself...who doesnt love sweet and spicy??

  • Yum Just the right amount of spice. Nice not to have a normal margarita


  • If you love this recipe you should try Tanteo Tequila They make an AMAZING Jalapeno Tequila. You just need a shot and a half of Tanteo Jalapeno, juice from a lime and some agave nectar and of course ice.

  • Not bad Next time Id muddle the jalapeno a bit to get more of the spicy flavor. Also I didnt have agave nectar, so I subbed Roses sweetened lime juice; but I think itd be better with the agave nectar+lime juice. Its definitely a strong margarita

  • Excellent drink I cut my half jalapeno into pieces before shaking the whole thing and its nice and zippy on the lips Also, I used a big glass and made one jumbo margarita out of the recipe; that way one is plenty

  • Ive had a similar margarita using chipolte chile powder. They also rimmed the glass with a mixture of the chipolte chile powder and salt. It was yummy and so addicting, however, my lips were burning by the end of the second drink.

  • I used green thai chilies instead of jalapeos.I garnished with a whole red thail chili in each glass, which looked rad.Not too spicy, but has a great kick. Ill make it again

  • I skipped the triple sec and fresh Jalapeno and used Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila instead. That made it fantastic

  • I had one of these for the first time while on vacation w/my husband and loved it Came straight to the internet and found this recipe Definitely a staple now:)

  • Loved it, I added a little more lime juice and agave...but awesome

  • Soooooo good

  • Amazing I added some extra jalapeno and cilantro to it and it turned out incredible. This is my new favorite cocktail recipe:)

  • If youre jalapeos are spicy. . . No need to muddle. Ive been trying to get this recipe right for months now. . .I was missing the agave nectar Thank you

  • Awesome For sure one of my new favorite drinks

  • I didnt get the full jalapeno experience i was hoping for with this recipe.

  • These were amazing

  • I also added fresh cilantro and cucumber diced up to this and its fantastic If you make it 4 servings it fills a tall glass like mine in photo. Also I added a few slices of the pepper to the drink to let it really spice up

  • I, too, used the Jalapeo tequila Timoteo and followed the recipe without the actual jalapeos. Excellent.

  • I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious I will definitely make this again

  • The cocktail itself tasted okay but I didnt taste the jalapeno.

  • Was hesitant about these but very tasty

  • Good way to use up all those jalapeos in my garden. Used honey instead of agave.

  • I used diet sprite only to leave out the sugar it probably is the best as written with the triple sec and aguave nectar but it was great with a little diet sprit if you want to lower the sugar

  • Added a little s/s mix. And yes will make again

  • These are delicious. My husband and I are addicted

  • The garlic press for the jalapeos is a great idea; I also add a little cilantro. Ive made these for a number of people and everyone wants the recipe If you arent able to juice your own limes, I measured mine and it was about 4oz worth.

  • Added muddled blackberries - Delicious

  • I liked this recipe a lot I like things to be pretty spicy, so the first time I made it I left the seeds in and let it sit for a while but it still wasnt quite hot enough for me. The second time I made it I muddled the jalapeo and that made it perfect

  • I had jalapeno margaritas at a BBQ joint in Austin. I have been wanting to make them ever since. This recipe was perfect First batch I followed the recipe to a T. Second batch I crushed the jalapenos for more kick...YUMMY Thanks for posting

  • I was looking for a recipe similar to the Popper Margarita from OTB and this is it. I added a bit more agave nectar and garnished with a couple of fresh jalapeo slices and this is an excellent recipe A little strange sounding, but once you try it, youll love it
