I generally don’t expect many people who read my blog to make most of the things I post about. Not everyone is into that, but would still like to read a funny blog post. I’m happy with making someone chuckle with my blog, even if it’s while they’re on the can.
(side note: I never realized some people’s desperation to read while pinching a loaf and grabbing shampoo bottles and other toiletries if they don’t have their phone handy)
However, this blog is different. I expect you to make this because 1) it’s easy with basically two ingredients; 2) the results are delish and versatile; and 3) it’s a f**king pandemic, we have the time (and the need) to drink something good! So drop your kids off at the grandparents or send them to bed early for some BS reason and enjoy this jalapeño infused tequila in some dranks.
What are some drinks that you could sub in jalapeño infused tequila? Basically whatever you want. I know creativity and brain power is at an all-time low with everyone being cooped up at home, which is certainly the case for me. I forget things my husband told me moments ago, or maybe I’m just reciprocating his “selective hearing” he’s always telling me about. Anyway, you can add this tequila into a margarita (stay tuned), a caesar or maybe a paloma (also stay tuned).
Jalapeño Infused Tequila
Cut the jalapeño. If you want it to be spicier, leave the seeds and pith or add in more jalapeño. My sensitive Polish taste buds can’t handle much heat so I generally take out the thicker pith and leave in some seeds.
Put in the jalapeño in the mason jar and pour in the tequila. I only poured in ¾ cup as I don’t like making large batches of infusions as it’s easy to forget about them or waste it, but if you want more, double it for half a bottle of tequila or quadruple for a full bottle.
Let the jalapeño infuse the tequila for 24 hours. Give it a sniff or sample and determine if it’s the flavour you want. If you want it stronger, check back in ½ to 1 day later. You can leave it on the counter or in the fridge, but if you opt for the fridge, it’s a slower infusion. When you’re happy with the flavour, pop it into the fridge to cool.
No idea how long this jalapeño infused tequila lasts for (not a scientist) but being made of alcohol, I’m going to assume forever, or until you can go to a concert again.
