Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, jalapeño, and  lime peel. Bring to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Then reduce to medium-low and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. 
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for at least 30 minutes. 
  3. Once cool, strain syrup into a large measuring cup, through a fine mesh strainer. Discard jalapeño peppers and lime peel. Set syrup aside until needed. 
  4. In a large pitcher combine the tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur. Then pour in the simple syrup and stir well to combined. Add a few slices of jalapeño into the pitcher if desired. 
  5. To salt the rim, combine the salt and chili powder in a shallow dish. Run the edge of a lime around a glass, then dip the glass into the chili salt combination. Repeat with all glasses. 
  6. Fill glasses with ice, then pour margarita mix on top. Garish with a lime wedge and a few jalapeño slices, and serve at once!
