Fresh Lime & Jalapeno Margaritas

Jalapeno Margaritas anyone?

Fresh Lime Jalapeno Margaritas | Inspiration KitchenI remember the very first time I had a Jalapeno Margarita with freshly squeezed limes, I couldn’t believe what I’d been missing.  It definitely did not taste the same as Margarita mix you buy in the store.

No, the flavors were much more vibrant ~ they just popped in your mouth and were bursting with fresh lime flavor!

Which inspired me to lead you up to something wonderful over the next week.  Three out-of-this-world recipes that start with this totally awesome, spicy jalapeno Margarita.

The 3 new recipes I’ll be posting over the next week go beautifully together ~ almost like they were made for each other.

So, they’re getting married on Thursday.  You’ll definitely want to be there for that!

Freshly squeezed lime juice and a bit of Triple Sec already set the tone for a basic Margarita, but by adding a spicy Jalapeno to the Tequila mix, you’ve got a Margarita that is over the top!   If you’re a person that seriously loves spicy stuff and Margaritas with a twist, this will be right up your alley.

On Monday I’ll share a salsa recipe, and on Thursday of next week, a burger recipe that this Margarita was made for.

Come back and check it out ~ you’ll have 3 new recipes to try for the weekend, that will wow your friends!

Enjoy!
