On May 28, 2013

What better way to start off Specialty Cocktail Tuesday than with a twist on a classic margarita, the 100% organic Love’s Hangover!

Specialty Cocktail Organic Margarita Loves Hangover

Love’s Hangover Recipe

  • – 2 ounces jalapeno infused organic tequila (see recipe below)
  • – 1/2 organic tangerine
  • – 1/2 organic lime
  • – 1/2 ounce organic agave nectar

Tools Needed: jar, muddler, cocktail shaker, small cooking strainer

To prepare the organic jalapeno infused tequila: (Infusion time – 24 hours)

– Pour half of a bottle of organic tequila into a jar that can be completely sealed.  Slice 2 organic Jalapeno Peppers lengthwise in half and place in the tequila.  Seal the jar and place in a dark area (pantry or cupboard).  Let sit for 24 hours then use a small strainer to remove the jalapenos and their seeds.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tip: Use 1/2 of a bottle of organic tequila.  That way, if the tequila is too spicy for you or a guest, you can dilute it with the remaining tequila.

To make Love’s Hangover: Peel apart 1 organic tangerine and place half (including peel) into a cocktail shaker.  Slice an organic lime and add half to the cocktail shaker with a squeeze.  Add 1/2 ounce of organic agave nectar.  Muddle the ingredients very well, until the juices of the tangerine and lime have been released.  Add 2 ounces of jalapeno infused organic tequila and about 3/4 cup of ice.  Shake well and pour into a rocks glass.

Enjoy!
