Here is your recipe!

  1. Kosher salt and a lime wedge to rim the glass
  2. Ice
  3. 2 ounces Reposado tequila (or substitute your favorite)
  4. 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice - about 1 large or 1 1/2 small limes; do not use bottled lime juice, as it will have a very off flavor 
  5. 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice - about 1/2 small/medium orange (For steps 4 and 5 you can substitute a ready mix from the store like we did in the video.)
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoon Jalapeño-Lime Balsamic - add 2 if you prefer a spicier margarita
  7. 1/4 to 1/2 jalapeno pepper - cut into thin, round slices (use more for more spice)
  8. Lime wedges - additional Jalapeño slices for serving
