Jalapeno Margaritas

Getting reviews...
Our easy make-ahead cocktail has a surprising kick, thanks to the addition of a whole jalapeno. (You can seed it if you want to tone down the heat.) Celery leaves provide an unexpected but cooling contrast.

  1. Pulse the lime juice, confectioners' sugar, celery leaves and jalapeno in a blender. Mix with the tequila and orange liqueur in a pitcher and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
  2. To serve, put some kosher salt on a small plate. Rub the rims of 8 cocktail glasses with the lime wedge and dip the rims in the salt. Add ice to the glasses and pour in the margarita.
