Grapefruit Jalapeno Cocktails


So, I'll admit, my absolute favorite mixed drink is a bloody mary (here's my favorite recipe) but over the weekend I wanted to try something different (and simple). This drink is just that. If you're a fan of sweet AND spicy drinks, this is right up your alley.

Ingredients:
  • tequila
  • grapefruit juice
  • jalapenos
  • limes
  • salt
Slice your jalapenos and let them soak in the tequila for a bit. Mix the jalapeno tequila mixture with some grapefruit juice (obviously, the amount depends on how strong you want the drink). Add a little lime and pour into a salt rimmed glass. Enjoy!

    1. If you let it soak long enough. You could also use other hotter peppers.

  6. That looks awesome! I can't wait to try it out- we don't really get grapefruit here though so I might try with orange juice or guava juice.

    1. Hi Courtney! I'm guessing this drink would be good with any juice. It's really the mix of the sweet and the spicy that makes it so interesting. :)
