Cilantro Jalapeno Margarita

Cilantro Jalapeno Margarita

A little bit of Rita in my life. Sorry that song is stuck in my head and I thought I’d share the love. Now that I can’t stop bobbing my head at my computer lets chat about margaritas. We shared a cool, colorful and refreshing Pomegranate Lime Margarita last week. If you like your cocktails with a little bit of a kick in the pants you might want to try these cilantro jalapeno margaritas. For a little extra something something (because jalapeno isn’t enough) we’ve given these ritas a chili sugar rim. Ba da boom! If you’re not quite that adventurous, a simple salt rim, or plain sugar to cut some of the heat are always options. We love options.

Mix up a few of these spicy numbers this weekend and pair them with your favorite Mexican dish. Like fajitas or enchiladas!  Old El Paso has a new line of entrees made for two that you can have ready in no time at home. You can’t go wrong with a ice cold margarita paired with fajitas or enchiladas. In my opinion (I’ve been catching up on past seasons of “The Good Wife” on my kindle and that judge and her “in my opinion” is also stuck in my head. Also if you follow along can you believe that Alicia is leaving the firm? GAH I’m so not good with that. Poor Will. Anyhoo.) of course.

TIP: When cutting a jalapeno use gloves or don’t touch your face or eyes afterwards. It’s painful and you will cry. Yes I know this from experience. Sigh.
