Fresh Jalapeno Margarita Recipe {All Natural Ingredients}

  • Author: Miss AK
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cocktail 1x


This incredibly fresh jalapeno margarita recipe uses all fresh ingredients and a touch of agave. It’s the perfect “skinny” and spicy version!


  • 4 oz. fresh lime juice (about 4 limes, juiced)
  • 2 oz. fresh orange juice (about 1 orange, juiced)
  • 23 oz. tequila of choice (I prefer Blanco)
  • 12 Tbsp. agave (sweeten to your liking)
  • 45 jalapeno slices
  • crushed ice, for serving
  • optional: fresh limes, salt and Tajin for the rim


  1. Add the lime juice, orange juice, tequila, agave, and jalapeno slices to a cocktail shaker (preferred) or glass jar. Muddle well to break up the jalapeno and release the oils of the pepper to infuse. 
  2. If you’d like a glass with salt and/or Tajin on the rim, run a lime around it and dip the glass in salt or a mixture of salt and Tajin. Fill your glass with crushed ice. 
  3. Add a few ice cubes and shake the cocktail together well. If you don’t have a shaker, stirring vigorously works, or use a jar with a lid to shake. 
  4. Strain the cocktail and pour it over the ice in the glass. 
  5. Garnish with a few more jalapeno slices and/or lime slices and CHEERS!


  • For this recipe, I like using a juicer to make my fresh citrus juice quickly. This one is great
