Hi. Do you like margaritas that aren’t obnoxiously sweet? A fan of fresh ingredients instead of stuff that comes out of a plastic bottle? Nice – you’re in the right place.
I’m all about spicy margaritas, but sometimes they can be jalapeno-heavy. The guava nectar is a nice balance to the heat, so you can sip on these without water refills.
Guava Jalapeño Margaritas (makes 2)
- 1/2 cup of freshly-squeezed lime juice
- 1 tablespoon of jalapeno-infused simple syrup (to make, add equal parts sugar + water to a pan with 1 jalapeno, heat until sugar is dissolved and let jalapeno sit for 1 hr)
- 4 oz of good tequila
- 2-3 splashes of guava nectar (to taste)
- Salt for glass rim
- 1 fresh jalapeno, sliced
- 1 lime
