Craft your own spicy jalapeno margarita with La Adelita
Quarantine has made many of us better bartenders, so why not use National Tequila Day to continue brushing up on your shaking and straining skills? We’re crazy about La Adelita, a portfolio of five incredible premium tequilas from a collab of top-notch distillers and wine and spirit artisans. Harvested in the highlands of Jalisco, each expression is delicious, but we recommend their reposado for this hot and tasty margarita.
- 1 slice of red jalapeno or chili pepper
- 3 sprigs of cilantro leaves
- 2 ounces of La Adelita Reposado tequila
- ½ ounce of agave syrup
- 1 ounce of lemon juice
- Salt and a slice of chili pepper to garnish
Muddle the chili slices and cilantro in a shaker, add the other ingredients, shake with ice and fine strain into an ice-filled tumbler.
