It’s official, folks. Summertime is upon us! Because it’s been a while, we should probably recap how summer works:

Summer’s obligation to us: provide sunshine, chirping birds, warm cars to enjoy upon exit from chilly buildings, minimal mosquitoes, and countless excuses to throw parties of 1 to 100.

Our obligation to summer: find a completely engrossing book, spend as many days as possible relaxing poolside and feeling confident in our bodies, eat only the best BBQ, and find/make/share a knock-your-socks-off margarita.

While I can’t help with all the above, I CAN provide book inspiration in that I’m planning to read Girl on the Train, Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, and Ajax Penumbra 1969 (a prequel to the WONDERFUL book Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Book Store) this summer. If you want to join my entirely unofficial Fed+Fit Book-Club, follow me on Instagram! We can dish over our thoughts on these summer reads.

Books aside, I can ALSO aid in your search for a knock-your-socks-off margarita by sharing the very best jalapeno margarita recipe in the whole wide world! It’s the very best and it’s almost good for you.

Important note of qualification: as a Garcia by birth and resident of San Antonio, TX with a picky palate for only the best ingredients that actually jive WITH my healthy body (vs. make me feel like crap), I am actually the foremost authority on tasty-delicious, almost-good-for-you margaritas.

Jalapeno Margarita Recipe Ingredients

This masterpiece of a cocktail is made possible by a small, but powerful list of ingredients: FRESH lime juice, silver tequila, honey, and some jalapeno + cilantro. The cilantro is optional for anyone who thinks cilantro tastes like soap. I’d never ask you to put soap in your margarita.

  • 2-4 tablespoons of honey
  • 4 fluid ounces of tequila
  • 4 fluid ounces of fresh lime juice
  • Half of a large jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro

How to Make a Spicy Jalapeno Margarita

This part is just as simple as the ingredient list thanks to a few tips, tricks, and handy tools that I have up my sleeve (note: don’t actually carry the handy tools up your sleeve…that’s weird!) Here’s how I make this drink so that I can get poolside ASAP:

  1. Muddle the Jalapeno – in the bottom of a pitcher, muddle the jalapeno slices (tip: use THIS grapefruit spoon (handy tool #1) for easy jalapeno seed removal) with the lime juice (handy tool #2 – THIS citrus juicer!) 10-12 presses with a muddler or back of a wooden spoon will do!
  2. Add the Tequila + Honey – add the tequila and honey, stir to combine thoroughly – or until all the honey is dissolved.
  3. Dress the Rim with Sea Salt – pour the sea salt in the bottom of a small bowl. Dip the top of each glass in the margarita mixture, let it drain off, then press the top of the glass into the bowl of salt. Gently tap the glass with your hand to knock off any excess.
  4. Pour, Garnish, and Enjoy – Fill each glass with fresh ice and pour in the margarita mix, then garnish with fresh lime and cilantro, and ENJOY!

That’s it! The cat is officially out of the bag. You know the key to my heart: good summer reads and a fresh lime jalapeno margarita. You can find me sitting poolside while I laugh and cry out loud to my books (I’m that girl who can’t bottle book emotions) and asking the bartender if he can sweeten my margarita with honey instead of syrup.

If you’re interested in hearing more of my thoughts on alcohol, how it’s made, how it’s processed, how to best prepare your body for a drink, and how I personally indulge, check out Episode 22 (Alcohol 101) of the Fed+Fit Podcast! I promise I only geek out over the science 7 times.

Q What’s the difference between a skinny margarita and a regular one?
A

So, what makes this jalapeno margarita ‘almost-good-for-you’ or ‘skinny’?! Instead of using a sugar-laden sweet and sour mix, we’re combining SIMPLE, good-for-you ingredients to make this poolside cocktail. Best part? *This* is how margaritas are authentically made – fresh lime juice gets the job done like no sweet and sour mix could ever do! Honey, though still a sugar, actually promotes our health rather than making us feel sluggish and icky the next day. Essentially, this skinny margarita recipe is the best of both worlds: authentic + better-for-you!

Q How long does it take to infuse tequila with jalapeno?
A

Infusing tequila with jalapeno actually takes 2-3 days (or up to a week), but because we wanted this recipe to be simple and fuss-free, we opted for muddling the jalapeno in the bottom of the pitcher and adding the other ingredients to it rather than infusing the tequila with it. That means that your margarita takes 10 minutes (rather than several days) to make!

Q What can I use instead of Triple Sec in a margarita?
A

There actually isn’t any Triple Sec in this margarita! While many classic recipes include Triple Sec, you actually don’t have to use it. The flavors of the lime, jalapeno, and honey are big and bold enough here to really flavor (and slightly sweeten) the margarita all on their own!

Q How do you spice up a margarita?
A

While this margarita does include jalapeno, because it’s deseeded, it really isn’t all that spicy. It’s bold, super flavorful, and just has a little kick of spice. If you’d like to take the spice level up a notch, feel free to leave the seeds in the jalapeno rather than removing them.

Recipe Notes

  • For a less strong margarita – you can top off your drink with sparkling water like topo chico.
  • For a slightly spicy margarita, remove the seeds from the jalapeno. For a spicier option, muddle the seeds then strain them out.
  • You can also use agave in place of the honey to sweeten this recipe

    First of all, I love this post and your writing voice. You are so hilarious. Second of all, I need to make these ASAP. Love me some margs!! And finally – about asking your bartender to use honey instead of syrup – does that actually work?! Normally, I stick with my boring old standby vodka soda with 3 limes but that is a total game changer!!!

    • Cassy says

      Cassy —  05/29/2015 At 20:16

      It DOES work! Works like a charm. Minus those occasions that they ask if honey is the same thing as agave …

  2. KMoore says

    KMoore —  05/31/2015 At 16:34

    From your margarita recipe article….”Everything from added sugars, dies, water, and other preservatives….”(I think you mean “dyes”?)

    Can you recommend a non-alcohol version of this drink for sober folks?

    • Cassy says

      Cassy —  05/31/2015 At 21:47

      Ah – thank you for that catch! Yes, that’s what I meant. It’s changed now. As for a non-alcoholic version, sub the tequila with some unflavored sparkling water or a kombucha you enjoy!

    Hi!! I Love this… Sounds SOOO fresh!!! Another thing, you mentioned to add sparkling soda instead of tequila? I’m pregnant but I’m loving the sound of this cocktail!!!

    Any idea will help!!!
    Thank you!!!

    • Cassy says

      Cassy —  07/17/2015 At 21:41

      Yes, ma’am! Just do an even swap of tequila for sparkling water and you’ll have a delicious mocktail on your hands!

    Made this freshtacular marg over the weekend – dang near perfect! We were out of cilantro, but had some basil growing in the backyard, so did a lil’ switcharoo and the result was two degrees short of an all-inclusive Mexican resort. Thanks!!!

    Thanks Kelly. I tried this recipe out with my boyfriend. Being a health-conscious and fitness freak who enjoys his occasional marathon participation, he simply enjoyed this drink. He likes to have this with his dinner.

    Gayle —  03/20/2017 At 09:05

    Absolutely the best I’ve ever had. I did double the recipe and just eaked out 3 drinks. I too used the same size glass as pictured. So if your hosting a few friends plan accordingly. They were delicious!

  9. Anna says

    Anna —  07/23/2017 At 16:25

    An awesome swap would be to use Mike’s hot honey for the extra sweet spice 🙂

    I made these a few months ago without a jalapeno and while that was fine, WITH a jalapeno is SO tasty. The spice is what makes them. They are not sweet, but still smooth. Woot!

    I find any excuse to make this recipe. I discovered it a couple of years ago and it has become my absolutely favorite Margarita recipe. It is perfect, not only for 5 de mayo but for any celebration or gathering. I love making a pitcher of it especially during summer. It is always a hit and highly requested by my friends. It’s the perfect complement to a Mexican or BBQ meal. I love the combination of flavors and the fact that it is made using natural ingredients. It is absolutely delicious and I highly recommend it. Try it and you will Love it as much as I do.

    Love this margarita recipe, I found it early on during quarantine and it’s been on repeat ever since. Fresh lime juice is the best (rather than a gunky mix) and the jalapeno adds just enough spice. I rim my glasses with some Tajin for a little more salty/spicy goodness with every sip 🙂

    Made these tonight and they were so good and refreshing! The fresh lime juice makes all of the difference! The only change I would make is making sure some seeds got in there to make it a bit spicier lol but my husband and I both loved it!

    • Brandi Schilhab says

      Brandi Schilhab —  07/22/2020 At 10:44

      Yes, fresh lime juice is KEY! So glad you both enjoyed it, Elyse!

    This is such great recipe! I made this as a mocktail, instead of tequila I added 4 ounces of lime Spindrift and it was delicious.

    I’m usually not a huge jalapeño fan because I typically don’t like spicy stuff, but this was just the right amount of spicy and sweet! Definitely will be making again, so yummy!!

    This was so delicious and I was skeptical!! I thought it was going to need soda water, but it was absolutely delicious! Our jalapeños were suuuuuuuper spicy so I left out the seeds, but the drink wasn’t that spicy! I bought another bag of limes today to make another one to go with pork carnita tacos tomorrow! (Fed + fit recipe of course!)

    This was sooo good! I’ve always been intimidated to make a fresh margarita. This was easy and it tastes so much better than using a mix. This will be on repeat this summer!

    Laura Noble —  07/24/2020 At 11:18

    This was very refreshing! I don’t love a lot of spice so I used less jalapeño and it was delicious. I had one with tequila and one with sparkling lime water and both were equally tasty.

    • Brandi Schilhab says

      Brandi Schilhab —  07/25/2020 At 12:44

      So great to know, Laura! We’re glad you enjoyed both versions!

    I’ve made these twice in the last two weeks! They are delicious! My husband usually makes the cocktails, but now I have some that I can whip up. This one and the frozen watermelon margaritas!! My husband said “you’re making the margaritas from now on!” Excited to keep making these!

    These were amazing last time that we made them. Any recommendations on how to use this recipe for individual margaritas opposed to a pitcher?

  57. Denise says

    Denise —  05/03/2021 At 09:52

    Sorry, but how much tequila? Isn’t 4 ounces 1/2 a cup? I am so confused…

    • Brandi Schilhab says

      Brandi Schilhab —  05/03/2021 At 11:28

      Yes, you’re totally right, Denise. Great catch! I’ve changed it to “4 ounces (1/2 cup)…”

  58. Dawn says

    Dawn —  10/04/2021 At 14:41

    This recipe sounds great! However I have never made margarita mix before. Can you tell me how much to double up on to make a pitcher for six servings? Thanks!

    • Brandi Schilhab says

      Brandi Schilhab —  10/06/2021 At 08:22

      Hi Dawn! For 6 servings, you’ll need 1 1/2 cups (12 fluid ounces) of lime juice, 1 1/2 jalapeno peppers, 1 1/2 cups (12 fluid ounces) of tequila, and 6-12 tablespoons of honey (more or less depending on how sweet you want it)! I hope that helps!

    I love this recipe! One adjustment I make is to use homemade honey syrup vs. pure honey — it’s nearly the same thing but doesn’t leave a sticky mess at the bottom of your glass and is easier to mix because the honey has been dissolved in water.
