It’s been a while since I shared a cocktail recipe around here, and I think we were all beginning to question my true dedication to the craft of drinking.. That is until I realized Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, the perfect excuse for me get my happy hour on!
Today I’m whipping up the deliciousness that is this skinny jalapeño margarita recipe for two reasons: number one being swimsuit season is upon us (please send help), and number two because there is nothing better than sips with a little kick! Okay okay, the reason I prefer my drinks spicy maaay be because they prevent me from being able to totally chug my glass. At least I’m honest, right?
In my defense, I don’t drink any type of sodas (usually only water, coffee, green juices,…and cocktails of course), so they’re my drink treat of choice. If you’re not a big fan of spice, you can just nix the jalapeno and rock the rest of the recipe! It will run you about 150 calories per serving.
To make it even more of a celebration, a few of my blogger friends are also sharing their favorite recipes for May 5th, so be sure to check out the links at the end of the post to see theirs…
Anyone else there that loves a spicy cocktail? It definitely makes me take my time during a happy hour without the sugar guilt. A win, win in my book.
