To make Jalapeño infused blanco tequila:

Infuse 5 diced medium-sized jalapeños (with seeds removed) in 700ml blanco tequila (in 750ml to litre-sized bottle/jar) for 10 minutes. Strain to remove jalapeños, seal and store refrigerated for up to 3 months.

Review:

Unusually, a stirred (not shaken) drink with citrus, and depending on your jalapeños your lips could be merely warmed or scorched. Alternatively, in a quest for ease and consistency, omit the jalapeños from your tequila and omit the 5ml (1/6oz) cane sugar syrup and replace with 10ml chili liqueur. You may also consider shaking rather than stirring!

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2009 by Jessica Gonzalez at Death & Co. in New York City, USA.
