Alex’s Berry-Peño Margarita!

With Cinco de Mayo almost here Alex will be whipping up a refreshing cocktail to go with whatever yummy treats Shellie has planned. All the ladies will be there; Alex, Shellie, Sadie (her story is a WIP), Amelia, Luna and Trixie. You met Trixie in A Little Bit In Love but you’ll learn more about her in Sadie’s upcoming story.

There will be margaritas, there will be salsa and there will be tons and tons of MAN TALK!

So grab your favorite berry, I used boysenberry because they are tangy and Alex doesn’t like “no stinkin’ sweet cocktails” and add this to your next GNO!

Have it frozen or on the rocks…but remember the “peño” is spicy!

Berry Peño Margarita

  • 6 Fresh boysenberries
  • 1-3 Sliced jalapeños (jar variety)
  • 1 Lime cut into wedges
  • 3 oz. Tequila
  • 2 oz. Triple Sec
  • Ice
  • 1/2 Lime, juiced
  • 1 tbsp. Jalapeño juice from jar
  • Salt/sugar

Before you mix the ingredients take a lime wedge and run it around the margarita glass until its nice and wet. Flip glass over and dip into salt or sugar to rim the glass…the choice is yours!

Next add jalapeño slices and boysenberries to a cocktail shaker and muddle like you mean it. Then add tequila, triple sec, lime juice, ice and jalapeno juice. Shake the hell out of that shaker and strain into your rimmed glass. Garnish with more berries and jalapeño slices.

Drink up and spill all your secrets!
