Author Rachel Conners

Ingredients

  • 3 oz Patrón Silver
  • 1 oz Patrón Citrónge Orange
  • 0.5 oz spicy coconut syrup see Notes
  • 1.50 oz Yuzu juice see Notes
  • 0.5 oz fresh lime juice

To garnish

  • Lemon wheel to garnish
  • Jalapeno slices to garnish
  • Kosher salt + lime zest to salt the rim

Instructions

  1. Combine kosher salt and lime zest in a bowl at least as large as your margarita glasses. Rub together to distribute the lime zest. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of your glasses to wet so the salt sticks. Dip the rims of the glasses into your lime salt to coat.
  2. In a cocktail shaker (or a large glass, if you don't have one), combine all of the margarita ingredients and shake with ice to chill.
  3. Strain the margaritas into your salt-rimmed coupe margarita glasses.
  4. Garnish each with a lemon wheel and jalapeno slice. Enjoy responsibly!

Recipe Notes

To make the spicy coconut syrup, infuse a coconut syrup (like Monin or Torani) with a few jalapeno slices until the syrup becomes pleasantly spicy. Strain out the jalapeno slices and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

If you can't locate Yuzu juice, you can substitute with lemon juice, white grapefruit juice, or a mix of 2 parts lemon juice: 1 part white grapefruit juice.
