Instructions
  1. The Ingredients
  2. Pop your lime in the microwave for a few seconds or until slightly warm, this really helps any citrus release their juices. Cut it in half over your juicer or directly over the drink shaker if squeezing the lime by hand because it will drip when cut. Juice the lime. Use the pulp side of the juiced lime rind to rub the rim of your margarita glasses and then dip them in the salt. The sugar from the lime juice helps the salt stick to the glass. I used to try to do this with water and I could never figure out why my salt wouldn’t stick. Duh.
  3. In these pics you can see that I actually used smoked salt – but to be honest, I ended up finding this too smokey in combination with the Mezcal -so I would say do either but not both.
  4. Next muddle your jalapeno in the bottom of your margarita glass. I use two slices but if you want more or less spice use more or less!
  5. Just smoosh it up until its partially crushed like so
  6. Now in your shaker add your ice and liquors to your lime juice and shake well. Pour it all into the glass over the jalapeno and garnish with a lime. Ta Dah!
