Instructions
  1. Pour the tequila into a mixing glass or small pitcher. Add the sliced jalapeño, 1/4 to 1/2 of it, depending on how spicy you want your margaritas. Set aside at room temp for 15 minutes (the longer you let the jalapeños infuse, the spicier it will be).
  2. Make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine equal parts of sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Chill in the fridge until ready to use. You can store any extra in the fridge for up to a few weeks.
  3. Make the margaritas by mixing together the jalapeño-infused tequila, orange-flavored cognac liqueur, lime juice and 1/4 cup simple syrup. Taste. If you’d like a spicier margarita, add more jalapeño and let it it sit a little longer. Pour into glasses and add lime slices and jalapeños for garnish. For a lighter margarita, fill the glasses 1/2 full and add sparkling water.
