I find it odd that I haven’t blogged a recipe for Margaritas before. It is my all-time favourite cocktail and one I order whenever it’s on the menu. Over the years I have learned that I like my Margaritas shaken, not frozen and that when I make them at home, it’s best I do so in a large jug because I can never only drink one (and it’s not fun having a fiesta on your own so a nice big jug makes it the perfect drink to serve at a party).

A classic Margarita is my absolute favourite but this version with a spicy kick is positively addictive. It’s almost like the warmth provided by the chilli-infused simple syrup makes the tingle from the tequila last a little longer, which is very much welcomed by my friends and I. Serve these in tumblers, over ice with a few slices of lemon and keep the jug close, you’ll need a top up before you know it!

    Though I tend to drink frozen margaritas over shaken, this looks amazing! What would substitute for chili’s for those of us who can’t handle the spice?
