Sweet Heat // Spicy Margarita Recipe

July 5, 2019

By:

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!
