Spicy Margarita

Do you ever crave a certain drink from a certain place?

I do.

Every so often I want a jalapeno margarita from Mex 1. There’s just enough spice to give ya a pep in your step but not kill ya.

One day while I was measuring out some of our new Ghost Scorpion salt, I was daydreaming about how good one of those margaritas would be. Then I thought, hold on, maybe there is a way to use this spicy salt to make a spicy margarita.

I thought this idea sounded so good in my head that I said it out loud and my mom and I began devising a plan. Thus this simple syrup was created and then this drink:

Here’s what ya need:

3 oz tequila (we used San Matias Legado Reposado)

2 oz lime juice

1 oz simple syrup

1/2 to 1 teaspoon cointreau

salt for rimming your glass

Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake and pour over ice. If you really like it hot, rim your glass with some of your spicy salt for an extra kick.
