I love Tequila. I also love limes. The only way I love them more is when you combine the two and make margaritas. Let me be clear here-I LOVE MARGARITAS. Usually I’m a purist when it comes to margaritas. I like to stick to the regular tequila-triple sec- lime-agave combo but, once in a while it’s fun to switch things up.

    The biggest issue I have when it comes to revised margaritas is that they are waaaaay to sweet. They usually end up tasting like a mated popsicle with tequila dumped in. SO, how do I solve that problem?

    I do it by balancing out the added sweetness of the fruit, with different types of spices. This time I went with serrano peppers. I usually try to pair the level heat appropriately with the level of sweetness in the fruit I’m going to use. Since I normally like to eat papaya with with lime juice anyway, I knew I was going to be upping the acidity with the extra lime, so I went with a milder chile here.

    If you like things to be a little spicier (and in my opinion, way better) use two whole serrano chile. If you are a little more timid when it comes to heat, remove the ribs and seeds of the peppers before adding to the aga

    However you decide to make your margaritas, I hope you they bring you as much happiness as they bring me!

    Enjoy & Peas out!
