Healthy Jalapeño Margarita

Healthy Jalapeño Margarita

Author: Ryan Chapman
Servings : 2


  • 4 oz. tequila silver is best
  • 6 oz. lime juice fresh squeezed, 5-6 medium limes
  • 1 Tbsp agave often labeled "agave nectar"
  • ice to taste
  • jalapeno fresh, sliced
  • flake salt optional, for rim


  • Slice the fresh jalapeño into rings. Drop 1-3 rings to the bottom of a cocktail shaker or a glass. Use a muddler or the handle of a utensil to smash the jalapeño.
  • Add ice, tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar to the shaker or glass. Mix or shake to combine.
  • Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a glass (or two if splitting this recipe...see notes). Spread the flake salt on a small plate and then dip the glasses in the salt to coat. Fill the glasses with ice.
  • Pour the margarita from the cocktail shaker or mixing glass evenly between the two glasses (if splitting) or one glass if serving as a Grande Margarita. Garnish with lime wedges and an additional jalapeño slice or 2 if desired.


NOTE:  This recipe makes one Grande Margarita (about a full pint glass) or two smaller margaritas (as pictured).
