You not only had me a margaritas, but you also had me at spicy margaritas. Not into spicy? Check out my grapefruit margarita recipe!
I was visiting family in Atlanta last week and we were discussing how we’re sick of boring drinks while going out. Vodka water, vodka club soda, whiskey coke, etc… It gets old! So, while the boys were out golfing, the girls decided it was time we do something about bland drinks and switch things up! We had an abundance of Orange LaCroix in the fridge, an extra jalapeno, and a few random pieces of fruit lying around. You’ve probably heard me say this before, but I hate wasting food and we only had a day left in Atlanta.
A classic version of a margarita with a little twist of LaCroix and Jalapeno.
- 1 can Orange LaCroix*
- 2 oz Casamigos Tequila
- Juice from 1 Orange Wedge or Orange Juice
- Juice from 1/2 Lime
- Lime for rim and garnishing
- 1 Slice Jalapeno seeded
- Sugar & Salt for Rims
Mix a little margarita salt and sugar together in a flat bowl or plate.
Line the rim of the glass with lime until wet.
Dip the glass upside down in the salt & sugar mixture until the edges are coated. I personally HATE salt in or around my margarita so I just use the sugar.
Add in the ice and pour in the LaCroix about 3/4 of the way. Add in tequila.
Squeeze in the lime and orange juice and stir.
Top the glass off with 1 slice of a jalapeno if you're looking for a kick.
Garnish with a Lime.
*You don't need the entire can of LaCroix. Just add in about 3/4 to fill the cup.
