spicy mango margarita recipe!

i made this one up.

1/2 a jalapeno, sliced
1.5 oz tequila (i used corzo silver tequila)
0.5 oz cointreau
2 limes
1.5 tablespoon agave nectar
1 oz mango juice
cayenne pepper and salt

(these measurements are estimates - adjust for your own tastes)

get a glass. wet the rim with lime juice. dip the rim in the 1 part to 1 part salt and cayenne pepper mix. put ice in the glass.

put sliced jalapeno (seeds included!) into tequila and triple sec. shake around until the liquor is good and spicy. strain out the jalapeno with a strainer or a coffee filter. add juice of two limes. add agave nectar. mix nectar in thoroughly, because it will stick to the bottom. if you don't have agave nectar, use simple syrup (i.e. sugar-saturated water). add mango juice.

pour over ice in glass. enjoy.
