Couture Cocktails

Cocktails created with fresh ingredients are much tastier than those made from a mix.  This is particularly true for margaritas and this one is delicious, especially if you like a kick to your cocktails.  You can adjust amount of jalepeno’s to your liking.

  • Cilantro Jalepeno Margarita

  • ½ oz cilantro syrup {1 cup water, 1 cup sugar heated until sugar is dissolved. Steep a cup of cilantro leaves in syrup for 10 minutes, cool and store for up to a month in refrigerator. Or use simple syrup you have on hand, heat and add cilantro}
  • juice of 1 lime {plus more for garnish}
  • 2oz of good quality tequila
  • fresh jalapeño strips { plus more for garnish}
  • salt to rim glass
  • ice
  • cilantro sprigs for garnish
  1. Rim glass with lime than dip in salt. Fill glass and cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add cilantro syrup, juice of lime, tequila and jalapeno strips to shaker – shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Pour through shaker strainer into salt rimmed glass and garnish with lime wedge, jalapeno ring(s) and cilantro sprig. This makes one 4 oz cocktail – adjust to glass size and amount of margarita consumption necessary.
