If you ask me, margarita’s aren’t just to make for Cinco de Mayo… they’re good all year round! While margaritas are one of my favorite drinks, I definitely choose spicy margaritas over a regular one so I’ve created this Guava Spicy Marg.
If you’ve never made a margarita at home – its easy and if you don’t like spicy margaritas then you can leave out the chipotle powder when you rim the glass.
Guava Spicy Margarita
- Juice of ½ lime
- 1 tbsp guava paste
- 1 oz triple sec
- 2 oz. tequila blanco
- 1 tbsp chipotle powder
- 2 tbsp course salt
- On a small plate mix together the chipotle powder and salt. Wipe the lime wedge around the glass rim and then turn the glass upside down on top of the salt and chipotle powder.
- Blend together lime juice, guava, triple sec and tequila. Strain into the glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
It’s a simple recipe and has the perfect sweet, saltly, spicy balance. Cheers friends!
