Aside from a whole month of Christmas music, one of the best parts about December is getting to binge watch all of our favorite holiday movies. Growing up, A Christmas Story and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation were an annual tradition in my household, but over the years, my list of faves has expanded to include Home Alone, The Grinch, Elf, You've Got Mail, Just Friends, and a few others. The best part is that most of these movies are just a click of a remote away, so plan a night to order delivery, mix up a few of these tasty chili jalapeno margaritas, and just chill, this season!
Ingredients (makes one)
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. citrus liqueur (citronage, triple sec)
Juice from: 1 lime, 1/2 orange, 1/2 a lemon
Dash of cayenne pepper, plus more for rim
1 tbsp coarse salt
Optional: fresh jalapeno slices (seeded) and serrano chili (whole) to garnish
In a shaker, combine tequila, citrus liqueur, juice, dash of cayenne with ice. Mix a pinch of cayenne pepper into salt for rim. Rim glasses with lime juice and salt. Add liquid, then jalapeno slices, fill with ice, garnish with whole serrano chili.
Be Merry & Bright!
