Jalapeño Tequila Cocktail

Alright. Tequila…so I have a love-hate relationship with tequila. I love the idea of it. I hate how it leaves me feeling the next day. But some people can take it way better than I can. And it is for you folks for whom this post is intended. 

Tequila by itself? Not bad. Jalapeño infushed tequila? Now we’re talking. And making that jalapeño tequila into a cocktail that will surely impress your friends? No problem! Enjoy…responsibly. 😉

Heads up: This tequila is STRONG. Go easy!


How to Infuse:

  1. Place jalapenos in an 16 oz ball jar. 
  2. Fill jar with silver clear tequila (brand does not matter – if there is one you like!). 
  3. Seal lid and store in a cool place (does not need to be refrigerated). 
  4. 24 hours later your alcohol will be infused.
  5. Combine vodka, ice and tonic in a glass. Stir.
  6. Garnish with 4 to 5 jalapeno slices from your infused jar.
