LYK Relaxation Station: Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita

by Pearl

Great news! It’s happy hour once again at the LYK Relaxation Station!

But first, here is what you missed last week: Cocktail Floats!

These 3 little fruits and vegetable are the stars of this Friday’s cocktail.  Individually, each of these flavors is a great accent to any dish.  However, when this unlikely bunch of bold flavors harmoniously unite in a Strawberry Jalapeño Margarita, their sweet, tangy, and spicy flavors will be dancing on your tongue!

Apparently, we are on a Strawberry kick these days.

We cleaned out the liquor cabinet on this one…

Here is your workout for the day: Muddle, muddle, and muddle some more.

   

Please don’t forget to remove the jalapeños after muddling or you’ll get burned!

 

Add the goods.

  

Serve over the rocks with some lovely garnishes and your set for a spicy night!

 Ingredients:

(Serves 2)

4 oz Tequila

1 oz Cointreau Liqueur (this is a brand of triple sec)

1 TBS Agave Nectar (more if you prefer a sweeter marg)

The Juice of two Limes

1/3 of a cup of chopped strawberries

2 small jalapeño peppers diced (don’t forget to take the seeds out first!)

Lots of Ice

 

Directions:

Muddle the jalapeño peppers with a dash of lime juice to extract the jalapeño flavor.  After, remove the jalapeño.  There will only be a little bit of liquid in the cup, but I promise it packs a punch!  Add strawberries to liquid and muddle.  Add lime juice, agave nectar, triple sec and tequila. Stir well. Serve over Ice, lots of ice, because this Margarita is strong!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
