Try It Tuesday...

Jalapeno Cactus Margarita

Inspired by our Labor Day trip to Scottsdale last weekend we came home and whipped up  these margarita's to celebrate the last day of summer. Don't let the jalapeno and cactus scare you away! It's the perfect balance of spicy and sweet...just enough to remind you of that vacation desert oasis you left behind.  Luckily I found Cheri's prickly pear cactus syrup in the airport on the way out yesterday! 

Here is what you will need:
10 oz. silver tequila
4 oz. grand marnier
1 oz. prickly pear cactus syrup
16-24 oz. lemonade
juice of two limes
1/2 tsp lime zest
jalapeno-3 small slices (remember the more seeds the hotter it will be) 

Fill blender with a little ice and add above ingredients

Here's what ours looked like before we blended

You can always adjust the ingredients to your liking as well. If you like it a little sweeter, add more lemonade or cactus syrup. If you want a little more heat add more jalapeno!

Blend, fill your cup with ice and enjoy!
