party favorite: sour apple and jalapeño margarita recipe instructions

Yield: 16 servings

Need a quick — but still artisanal — drink recipe to whip up for your upcoming party? You’ll never want to make any other drink after trying this spicy twist on the traditional margarita!


  • 36 oz. sour green apple juice (we used a soda, though plain apple juice works)
  • 24 oz. tequila
  • 8 oz. triple sec
  • 8 oz. lime juice
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 8 jalapeños
  • 3 limes
  • Salt
  • Ice


  1. To make the jalapeño syrup, mix together the water and sugar over medium-high heat. Chop up the jalapeños and add to the mixture. Bring it to a boil and take off the heat after 1 minute of a rolling boil. Strain out the jalapeños and let the mixture cool, putting it in the freezer if necessary.
  2. Once the mixture is cool, add together the apple juice, tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and the syrup.
  3. To serve, slice the limes into eighths and add a slice so that you can place the limes on the rims of the glasses. Slide the lime around the rim of an empty glass. Prepare a tray of salt. Take the empty glass with lime juice on its rim and, turning it upside down, salt the rim on the tray. Place a few large ice cubes in the glass, fill with the margarita mixture, add an umbrella, and — voila! — you’ve now just made the most in-demand drink we’ve ever concocted.
