COLORFUL COCKTAIL | Citrus Habanero Margarita



  • 1 habanero
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • Kosher salt for the rim
  • Orange and habanero slice for garnish

Slice the habanero pepper and remove its seeds. Place the sliced pepper in the orange juice and muddle to release the heat from the pepper. (Reserve one habanero slice.) Strain the spicy orange juice and combine with tequila. Take a slice of orange and rub it around the rim of the glass, and dip the rim into kosher salt. Fill glass with ice and pour the margarita over top. Garnish with a slice of orange and a thin habanero slice.
