Slice a Jalapeño

Depending on how spicy you like your margaritas, you can incorporate jalapeño slices in several ways. For a milder spicy marg, deseed the pepper, slice it, and toss in a few pieces. If you’re in the mood for a spicier marg, muddle the jalapeño slices before adding them to your drink. For a next-level spicy marg, add in a few jalapeño seeds. This will really bring out the heat. (But don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

Did you know that jalapenos are one of the best sources of vitamin C? That basically makes a jalapeño margarita healthy, right?

Sprinkle Some Spice

Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or Tajin to your margarita for an unforgettable twist. There are several ways you can incorporate it—add it directly to your Flybird margarita or rim your glass with it. Then impress your friends with a spicy, bartender-free margarita.

Try Spicy Margarita Salt

Rim your margarita glass with heat. Look for spicy margarita salt next time you’re at the store, or make your own chili salt by combining salt, ancho powder, chili powder, and paprika. Add cayenne pepper if you want a bolder kick.

Add a Dash of Hot Sauce

Seriously! Whether your hot sauce of choice is Cholula, Texas Pete, Tabasco, Frank’s, or something else, we can assure you that you can use it for much more than hot wings and pizza. Add a dash (or two…or however many your heart desires) of any hot sauce to your favorite Flybird margarita to kick things up a notch. Play around with different hot sauces combined with different flavors until you find the one you can’t get enough of.
