I feel like everyone has found their "thing" during the 2020 quarantine, my "thing" is making margaritas, specifically spicy ones. I started infusing my own tequila with jalapenos for either watermelon or pineapple spicy margs. I became quite the mixologist and muddler!
A few weeks ago I was at Whiskey Joe's beach bar and I ran into a tequila rep who offered me a shot. Umm YES please. It was a spicy tequila and IT WAS AMAZING. I ended up getting two bottles of the Ghost Tequila and created a recipe to share with y'all. I never ever use margarita mix, that will tear your stomach UP. There is way too much sugar in those, trust.
