⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Why is jalapeno used in cocktails?

Jalapeno adds a spicy kick and vegetable note to cocktails. In addition, the heat can help balance the sweetness or heaviness of a cocktail, thanks to its bright, spicy, and acidic flavors.

What is Tajin seasoning?

Tajin is a Mexican seasoning blend made with chili peppers, lime, and salt. It’s not overly spicy, but it has a powerful flavor.

Do margaritas get you drunk fast?

Not in and of themselves. Margaritas are sweet cocktails, and that sweetness can mask some of the alcohol flavor in them. So margaritas don’t get you drunker faster. Rather, they fool you into thinking you can have more of them.
