Do you love spicy margaritas as much as Rich & Kitch?! We can’t drink a margarita any other way! Based on some of our favorite ingredients we had in the house one weekend, the Strawberry Habanero Margarita recipe was created! The strawberry makes it sweet & the habanero brings the heat, making this a well-balanced & refreshing spicy margarita that will mentally take you to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!
The Rich & Kitch strawberry habanero margarita recipe is super easy to make, too. All you have to do is muddle some strawberries & a few slices of habanero peppers in a cocktail shaker, squeeze a lime or 2, add your favorite tequila, ice, & shake it up! I recommend salting your margarita glasses with tajín clásico seasoning (chili lime salt), & don’t forget to put ice in your margarita glasses before pouring in the contents from your cocktail shaker! You can also top off this margarita with lime la croix to make it a little less fuerte (strong). This is my new favorite spicy margarita recipe, so if you like it as much as I do, make sure you tag me on Instagram or use #kitchensinkit. Salud!
