Watch: My Favorite Spicy Margarita

photo credit: Erica Hampton Photography

Who doesn’t love a good spicy margarita!? It’s one of my favorite drinks to serve when I’m hosting my friends. Everyone loves them! Also, let’s be honest–this momma needs a drink!

Click on the video below to get my recipe! 

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. Casamigos Blanco
  • 1 oz. Fresh lime juice
  • .5 oz. Orange infused syrup
  • 2 Cucumber slices
  • 8-10 Cilantro leaves
  • ½ Rim sugar, cilantro + salt
  • 1 Cucumber + 1 Serrano slice for garnish

1. Combine all ingredients into a shaker. Make sure to do tequila last just in case you mess up! It’s always better not to have to dump the most expensive of the ingredients.

2. Muddle fruit and herbs.

3. Add ice and shake vigorously for 8-10 seconds. Chilling the cocktail and water is an important element in any drink!

4. Before pouring, rim the rocks glass with a fresh grapefruit to add moisture for the salt.

5. Strain into rimmed rocks glass. Add fresh ice (fresh ice prevents the cocktail from diluting quickly.) Garnish with cucumber and pepper.

3. Transfer batter to a large zip top bag, snip the corner off, and pipe batter evenly into donut wells, filling them ⅔ to ¾ full. You may also use a spoon.
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges just start to brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before dipping in glaze.
FOR THE GLAZE
1. Combine ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and dunk donuts into glaze one by one. Transfer to wire rack over a baking sheet or wax paper to catch glaze drippings.
