If you’re into spicy cocktails, I suggest Royal Rose 3 Chili Simple Syrup instead of this homemade version (available at of course) to bring added heat. The Grapefruit and Chili Margarita fits all styles of celebration, not just national margarita day.

Grapefruit goes with tequila, spice goes with tequila… we’re just
bringing them both together in the Grapefruit & Chilli Margarita recipe.

Grapefruit & Chilli Margarita
– 1 1/2 oz tequila
– 1 oz fresh grapefruit juice
– 1/2 oz chilli simple syrup
– 1/4 oz fresh lime juice

Chilli Simple Syrup
– 8 oz demerara sugar
– 4 oz. water
– 1 sliced jalepano
Heat to make simple syrup, then add slices of pepper & simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and steep 20 minutes. Strain and chill. Add vodka to keep stable.
