Craving a spicy cocktail? While my husband is the usual connoisseur of spicy margaritas and other cocktails, I’ve been trying out some new ones, and I have to admit, I’m becoming quite hooked! Sip sip hooray!
Who wants jalapeños? No really. I have no idea why but peppers grow like hot cakes here in Tennessee. My husband and I have a bush in our backyard, and my Mom has multiple jalapeño plants in her garden. You don’t have to worry about squirrels or rabbits eating them (one bite and they won’t be back).
Basically, we have 2398493 jalapenos around these parts. Literally. There are only so many jalapeño poppers one can make. I love a touch of spice but I don’t really want to take full bites of this pepper. Cocktails though? Now we’re talking.
My favorite sushi place in Nashville (Ninki for anyone who is visiting soon) has a wasabi margarita that he loves so I’m fairly certain he is going to love these spicy cocktails! And we can use up some of these jalapenos that are taking over my counters.
I’m so afraid that either George or baby Blakely are going to get their hands on one. George has go-go-gadget limbs and can reach anything he wants…ever!
Try out these gorgeous spicy cocktails pictured above this summer, and let me know what you think!
I know I’ll be putting my jalapenos to use with several of these soon! I’m pretty sure that Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita might be on my to-do list this evening!
