Margaritas and guacamole are a perfect combination but have you ever thought about putting the two together? The Guacarita has tequila, agave nectar, lime juice and cilantro. It's never going to replace the margarita in popularity but it's definitely different. Other unique margarita add-ins include pineapple, cucumbers, a cilantro simple syrup and chiles. Chile peppers seem to be a big story in margaritas lately. Just as chile and chocolate have made it into the mainstream, so too jalapeno and tequila have suddenly become more popular together. And a jalapeno margarita has the added bonus of warming you up. There are a couple of ways to make a jalapeno margarita. You can buy a pepper-infused tequila (Tanteo makes a great one), you can infuse your own tequila by allowing chiles to set in tequila for several days and then remove them or you can try a recipe like this one that uses a pureed chile.
Should your margarita leanings take you in a less adventurous direction, try the recipe from Don Julio tequila after the jump.
