Pepper-Infused Tequila:

1/2 jalapeno pepper

One 750-milliliter bottle blanco tequila

Mango Puree:

1 mango


3/4 ounce agave simple syrup 

3/4 ounce lime juice 

Thinly sliced jalapeno pepper rings, for garnish


  1. For the pepper-infused tequila: Drop the jalapeno into the tequila and let it infuse for 4 to 5 hours. Discard (or bravely eat) the jalapeno.
  2. For the mango puree: Peel the mango and cut the flesh away from the pit. Add the mango to a blender with 1 tablespoon water and blend until smooth.
  3. For the cocktail: Put 2 ounces of the pepper-infused tequila (reserve the rest for another use), 1 ounce of the mango puree, the agave syrup, lime juice and 3 to 4 ice cubes in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into an up glass and garnish with a ring of thinly sliced jalapeno. Assume a poker face.
