Jalapeno Margaritas


I don't go out very much, to bars and such, but last night was a doozie for me. I went to dinner with a girlfriend, then we decided to go out country dancing and I didn't get home until 3 a.m. THREE IN THE MORNING. On a weeknight. I must have lost my marbles, because my body can not do 3 a.m. anymore. Waking up three, ok four, hours later to get ready for work was not something I looked forward to as I layed my head down, but it worked out ok. I'm a little tired today, but nothing like I was dreading. And tonight I have three functions to go to. Sigh. When did I go and get myself a social life? Ha! Given last night's adventure, I thought a margarita would be an appropriate post for today. What do you think?

A couple of weeks ago, JF and Monkey came to visit me for the weekend. We went out for Sushi, chatted and caught up, and then headed home to make these delicious margaritas. JF and I are both fans of jalapenos in general, so putting them in a margarita sounded like a perfect idea!! It was a fun drink and a great way to finish off a night of catching up with a great friend. I will definitely try them again sometime, and make a few tweaks to ramp up the spice ;) And, it doesn't get much easier than this!

For two:
4-6 ounces tequila
juice of 2 oranges (you can use 2 cups of bottled juice, if you prefer)
juice of 1 lime (can sub 1/4 cup lime juice, but the real thing is better!)
juice of 1 jalapeno (I used 2 Tbsp of juice from a jar of sliced jalapenos)
1-2 tablespoons agave, to taste
1/4 cup club soda
1 jalapeno, sliced
ice cubes

Combine juices with agave, club soda and tequila, pour over ice and garnish with sliced jalapenos.
