JALAPENO THYME MARGARITA, 2 WAYS

Updated: May 31

Unless ill, I would never be able to pass up a margarita- especially if infused with something hot and peppery- like jalapeno. I make this two ways, although now with my knowledge of Jalapeno Limeade by Trader Joe's, my convenience-oriented self will likely choose that method more often than my previous way. But like fraternal twins, the engineering of the elements does not bear on the quality of the final product;I love them both equally, they are so delicious.



"It would be easier to big-batch the first recipe if making for more than 3 people."

Notes: Roll limes prior to juicing.
