I love a good margarita but making a freshly squeezed margarita isn’t the most practical use of time when you’re hosting a big party. You certainly can make margaritas ahead of time but then you have to rely on guessing how many margaritas to make. So what ya gonna do? Make these spicy cheater margaritas aka Spicy Cheateritas
A little lemon, a little lime, a healthy dose of tequila topped with sparking orange water and garnished with a slice of jalapeño and you have yourself a pretty darn tasty Cheaterita. If you want to get fancy you can rim the glass with salt. I skipped that step because I don’t like salt. But if you like it, go crazy and rim away.
- 1 oz Tequila
- Splash of lemon Juice
- Splash of lime juice
- 2-3 oz of sparking orange mineral water you can substitute orange soda too
- 1 slice jalapeño
In a glass mix tequila, lemon and lime juice.
Fill glass with ice.
