Spicylicious Margarita

Again, I’ve been neglecting my fine food blog. I think my main issue is how time consuming it is to translate and write recipes, especially when, for the most part, I don’t even have one! But tonight I made an awesomesauce drink, so I just have to share it. Also drink recipes are way easier than a complete meal 🙂

Anyways, two weeks ago I went on a happy hour with a group of new colleagues. We celebrated that out three day face-to-face training was completed. Ofc I took the initiative to find an appropriate locaton for this event. I turned to one of my favorite friends in restaurant life – Yelp! Found a bar two minutes away, called the Blind Goat. Great happy hour, and I was excited to try the majority of the cocktails on the menu. But the one that really caught my attention was the Jalapeño Cilantro Margarita. I love Margaritas, and cilantro, and jalapeños – it was the perfect combination for me. So I ordered it, with two other girls. And it was freakin’ amazing. It was almost like enjoying an entire meal right there, in that tiny little glass. So I had to make it myself!

Tonight I didn’t have fresh jalapeños in the fridge, but I had a red hatch chili (I think that’s what it was called), so I figured that should do the trick. Holy moly it sure did do the trick, spicylicious is definitely the correct description. It made my lips swell, LOL! So for the recipe – I will only recommend you guys to muddle ONE sliced ring of chili, not two. Or if you’re sensitive, maybe don’t muddle it at all.

Spicylicious Cilantro Chili Margarita (1 glass)
1,25 oz Tequila
0,75 oz Cointreau
1 sliced ring of fresh chili pepper or preferrably jalapeño
2 spigs of fresh cilantro
1,5-2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
Salt for glass rim

Instructions:
Pour the Tequila into a shaker. Add the cilantro + chili, muddle gently. Fill up with ice and add all other ingredients. Shake it all up and strain into a glass. If needed, adjust the amount of lime juice and simply syrup to taste. Also make sure to add extra salt to the rim!! For anyone who never decorated the rim with salt; drag a piece of lime around the rim, then dip in course salt.  Enjoy & decorate with a cilantro leaf. Yum!
