Cheers! Peach Jalapeño Margaritas and Georgia Tech
For those of you who caught my post on Facebook and Instagram yesterday, celebrating my daughter's acceptance and financial awards to Georgia Tech, I posted this picture of this scrumptious each jalapeño recipe, which is courtesy of Dessert for Two, and promised the recipe...Here it is!
Yields 2 cocktails
For the jalapeño simple syrup:
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
½ of a fresh jalapeno, sliced in half
For the margaritas:
2 ripe peaches, pitted and diced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
¼ cup jalapeño simple syrup
1-2 shots of silver tequila
extra lime juice for the rim of the glass
salt or sugar for the rim of the glass
First, make the simple syrup: in a small saucepan combine the sugar, water and jalapeño. Bring to a simmer while smashing the jalapeño with a wooden spoon to extract the flavor. Once it boils, remove from heat and let cool completely. Transfer to a container and chill in the fridge until ready to use.
To make the margaritas: blend the diced peaches, lime juice, ¼ cup of the jalapeño simple syrup, and tequila in a blender. Add a handful of ice cubes and blend until slushy. Enjoy garnished with lime and jalapeño slices.
Cheers, friends! xx, LS
