Beverages » Jalapeño Summer Sizzle
Cool down from the summer heat with this spicy, refreshing sipper. Jesse Dupuis makes Woodward at Ames' "sizzling" margarita boasting cilantro and a kick of heat from muddled, fresh jalapeño. To these, Jesse adds blanco tequila and lime juice, then sweetens his margarita with agave simple syrup (a mixture of agave nectar and hot water). The whole ordeal is given an aggressive shake, then strained over fresh ice.
