Here’s a spicy option of one of our favorite classic cocktails. Tequila is the bulk of this cocktail so look for a good quality, 100% blue agave tequila. Be sure to use fresh lime juice versus using a sweetened, bottled lime juice, which can have added sugars and artificial flavors. The more jalapeño slices you add, the spicier this drink will be. Make sure to wash your hands after handling the jalapeño! Garnish with a cooling slice of cucumber if desired.
