Jalapeño Margarita (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Beverage, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan

Summer just got hotter…

I first had a chili margarita in Hawaii, and it was the best margarita I had ever had. My cousin and I recreated it at home, and it is GOOD. The jalapeño is optional, but it is absolutely worth it. If the tequila wasn’t enough, the chili adds an extra feel-good kick going down. You have to try it.

Spicy margs just hit different.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 1 drink


  • 1 shot tequila
  • 1 shot orange liquor
  • 1-2 shots fresh-squeezed lime juice (to taste)
  • 1-3 slices of jalapeño pepper
  • 3-5 ice cubes
  • 1 tbs. salt



  1. Add tequila, orange liquor, lime juice, and ice to a shaker and shake! À la James Bond, we like it “shaken, not stirred.”
  2. To create the salty edge on your glass, wet the lip of your glass with lime juice and twist over a plate of salt.
  3. Drop in a few slices of jalapeño (start with one and increase to taste!). I promise it’s worth it.
