Blood Orange and Jalapeno Margarita

Jalapenos and blood orange juice might sound like a slightly odd combination, but they’re not. In fact, they work so well together that I guarantee that you’ll make audible noises when you take a sip of this.

Blood Orange and Jalapeno Margarita

Makes 2 drinks.

Kosher salt
3 oz tequila, divided
1 (11 oz) can of blood orange soda (I used San Pellegrino), divided
2 teaspoons pickled jalapeno juice
Jalapeno (for garnish)

Gently wet the tops of two cocktail glasses with water. Pour kosher salt onto a plate, and gently turn the top of the glasses into the salt. Add ice to the glasses, and divide the tequila and blood orange soda between the two glasses. Add a teaspoon of jalapeno juice to each glass, and garnish with jalapeno.
