A lazy Saturday calls for...

...a Spicy Paloma!

Fiery hot tequila margarita

We really enjoyed our visit to Mayahuel in New York, and were inspired by all of their tequila-based cocktails. Within hours of arriving home from New York we were trying to reproduce their delicious drinks.

This is our attempt to reproduce their Spicy Paloma. We used a margarita base as the starting point, and the Mayahuel menu as a guide:
3 oz jalapeño-infused tequila
2 oz fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
2 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
¼ oz agave nectar (or simple syrup)
tonic water
kosher salt

Rim a glass with kosher salt. Mix the other ingredients (save the tonic water). Pour over ice, and add tonic water to taste. Delicious. And with a nice post-margarita burn, this is a really unique turn on a traditional margarita. And Mrs. Dude liked our incarnation even better than the Spicy Paloma. Enjoy!

Was the jalepeno-infused tequila a "home brew"?

Indeed it was. Follow the link above for instructions on how I made it.
