Spicy Jalapeño Margarita

This easy spicy margarita recipe combines orange juice, freshly squeezed lime, & jalapeño slices with Blanco tequila served over ice with a Tajin seasoned rim & egg-white foamy finish.

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 drink 1x


  •  2 ounces Blanco Tequila 
  • 1 1/2  lime, juiced
  • 1.5 oz orange juice 
  • 23 jalapeno slices
  • 1 tsp jalapeno juice (from a jar of pickled jalapenos)
  • 1 tsp monk fruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice, more or less to taste)
  • 1 egg white (optional)
  • Tajin Seasoning
  • Ice
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  1. Combine the fresh squeezed lime juice, orange juice (filling in for triple sec!), spicy jalapeno juice, your choice of sweetener, and Blanco tequila in a cocktail shaker and shake. Shake 10-15 seconds. Add the egg white and shake vigorously again for 20 more seconds. 
  2. Rim your glass with lime juice and rub it into the Tajin seasoning until the rim is completely coated.
  3. Strain the mixture over ice after rimming your glass.
  4. Add two slices of jalapeno and a lime wedge for garnishing.
  5. Enjoy!


Make sure to use fresh lime juice and not the juice from a bottle. 

You can find Tajin seasoning at most grocery stores in the spice aisle.

The purpose of the egg white is to give the foamy top. Feel free to remove if you do not care to have that
