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 : Ingredients 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 optional: extra lime juice for the rim of the glass salt or sugar for the rim of the glass Instructions 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
