Spicy Citrus Margarita: a super quick and refreshing margarita drink to perk up your taste buds. Perfect for BBQ, Parties, and just about any occasion. Can be made Pitcher size too
The glasses are rimmed with a cares pink salt + chili (tajin) mix to highlight the flavors further.
It’s an extremely easy margarita to make as we are using a mix of store-bought juice and fresh juice at home. The citrus mix is literally summer in a glass!
I know at times you may not have grapefruit juice, so you can omit it or use grapefruit syrup.
1 Cup Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Grapefruit Juice
1/2 Cup Tbsp Lime Juice
1 Small Jalapeño – Sliced in thin circles
1/4 Cup Tequila – Blanco or Any Gold Variety
4 Tbsp Triple Sec
4 Tbsp Sugar/Sweetener – optional
2 Cups Ice
Rimming the Glass:
2 Tbsp Coarse Pink Salt
1/4 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp Tajin (you can use chili powder too)
1 Lime Wedge (slit in between)
As I did mention above, this Spicy Margarita is extremely easy and since most of the ingredients are store-bought, it’s a simple, mix, shake and pour recipe.
WHICH Makes it PERFECT for Big Batches or Pitcher Size.
You just need to taste test if making a pitcher size and adjust the flavors accordingly.
You start by rimming the glasses with the spicy mix (it has a hint of sugar but you can omit it in case you want to go spicy all the way).
Pro Tip on Rimmed Glasses:
Once the glasses are rimmed, it’s pretty simple.
Just muddle the jalapeno with some triple sec, sugar and splash of juice.
Then sieve this and pour this, along with all the juices, tequila in a large pitcher and stir.
Now remove the rimmed glasses from the fridge.
Add ice and pour the Spicy Margarita !!!!!!
I like to add quartered orange/grapefruit slices on the top of each margarita and sprinkle some of that spicy-sweet mix on top.
I also like serving this for my BBQ/Grill parties as nothing like a fiesta spicy drink (even if the bbq is for just the 2 of you).
These go extremely well with sliced meat, cheese, roasted nuts (cashews are superb here) or even sliced fruits/veggie platter.
Always make some extra as this margarita goes really soon 😉

I prefer to use fresh lime juice.
