Sweet Heat // Spicy Margarita Recipe

July 5, 2019

By:

Becca Grabner

Margaritas are a great go-to cocktail to cool down with on a hot summer day. The LIY Team is really into spicy margs lately! So we created a twist on the classic margarita to bring you a beverage that really kicks up the heat! This drink subs in mezcal for the classic tequila for a smokier flavor, and adds in all the summery flavors like pineapple and lime for a fruity sweetness! We added sliced jalepeño to turn up the heat, but cooled it down with coconut milk! If you really want to feel the burn, you can add a chili rim like we did. Take a look at the recipe below — we hope you’ll enjoy! Cheers to a summer filled with sugar, spice and everything nice!

Spicy Mezcal Margarita

Ingredients

  • 3 parts coconut milk [we like canned best]
  • 2 parts pineapple juice
  • 1 part lime juice
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1 part mezcal
  • 1 jalepeño [sliced]
  • chipotle chili powder for rim [optional]

Instructions

  1. Stir together the coconut milk, pineapple juice, lime juice, simple syrup and mezcal.

  2. If you would like the chili rim, wet the rim with lime juice and dip into chili powder in a bowl.

  3. Pour the mixed beverage into the glass over ice.

  4. Add a slice of jalepeño and enjoy!

    I love your posts, any chance you could put together a capsule wardrobe for fall? I would love to start the school year with a capsule wardrobe, it would make my life so much simpler. Thank you!

  2. Karol Hollis says:

    I have a Mezcal and it has soo much of a smoke flavor. Does your mezcal have that before the recipe? Blah! Yuck!

    • Hi Karol! Mezcal is inherently smoky in flavor, but the coconut milk in this recipe tones that smokiness way down! I’d say if you already have some mezcal, give it a try — maybe this will end up being a way that you’ll actually like to drink it! 🙂

    Love this! There’s a local restaurant where we live that has a Passion Fruit Jalepeno Margarita on the menu year round! Cheers!!!
