It's Friday! Hand Me a Drink.

The weekend is here and a great way to begin unwinding is with a flavorful and refreshing cocktail. Darryl Robinson from Drink Up shared a secret for easily adding some punch to a margarita–with jalapeno-flavored tequila.

Here’s the recipe:

Jalapeno Margarita
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Agave Nectar
2 oz Jalapeno-Flavored Tequila
Splash of OJ

Shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice, serve in a rocks glass, and garnish with a slice of lime.

Shake one up for yourself and some friends, and let us know what you think.

Any other recipes we should try this weekend? We wanna hear!

And don't miss Darryl's recipes for classic martinis, vodka infusions, and a molecular screwdriver this Sunday evening at 10:30pm ET on Cooking Channel.
