Have a Happy National Tequila Day with Jalapeno Margaritas!

Here is a refreshingly different drink that is certain to be a party-starter! The longer it sits, the spicier it gets, so drink up!

Jalapeno Margaritas
by Judy

hickory smoked salt for rimming glass (or alternately, chipotle salt)
lime wedges
ice cubes
4 ounces tequila
2 ounces triple sec
juice of 2 limes
2 Tablespoons agave nectar
1/3 to 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced (be sure to wear plastic baggies on your hands or gloves when doing this!!!)

Pour 1/4 inch salt onto small, shallow dish. Moisten the edge of two margarita or rocks glasses with the lime wedges, and dip into salt. Fill with ice and set aside. In a cocktail shaker, mix tequila, triple sec, lime juice, agave nectar, and jalapeno with some ice. Cover and shake until outside is frosty. Strain into prepared glasses and garnish with lime wedges. Makes 2.
