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!
