effiespaper-spicy margarita recipe

Ok, so it’s really my BFF’s, but it’s so simple that it would be a shame not to share it with you!  And really what Cinco De Mayo celebration is complete without a killer margarita?!?? It’s super simple.


  • 1 Bottle Jose Cuervo Skinny Margarita mix (but the skinny cuz it already has the alcohol in it! And hey, it’s skinny so less calories, right?)
  • 1 Jalepeno Pepper (or two if you really like your cocktails spicy!)


  1. Slice the Jalepeno into rounds
  2. Pour half the bottle of Jose Cuervo in a pitcher or another bottle
  3. Drop your Jalepeno slices into the half full bottle of Jose Cuervo.
  4. Pour the rest of the bottles contents into the half full bottle so that its full again. Cap it and shake.
  5. Rim your glasses with salt. (Take 2 saucers, add Kosher salt to one and fill the other with water).
  6. Pour your drink mixture into your rimmed glasses and enjoy!
