We're here to tell you that you're better than that dusty bottle of margarita mix that's been sitting in your cupboard since last year. Minnie's recipe for a margarita featuring our 7-Pepper Jelly is a sophisticated take on the traditional favorite that will make you wish every day was Cinco de Mayo! Grab that tequila, some limes and our fan favorite pepper jelly and mix one up to celebrate!

7-Pepper Margarita

There's nothing wrong with celebrating Cinco De Mayo with a classic Margarita, but why not up your game with a spin on it?! I promise this slightly savory take on the classic is sure to hit the spot!

One of my favorite things to do during the spring/summer is to juice anything and everything possible to create new and interesting cocktails! Kansas City Canning Co's 7-Pepper Jelly is a nice mix of sweet and spicy, and I must say it's quite delicious with some cheese and crackers!

1.5 ounces Fresh Red Bell Pepper Juice
1 Tablespoon Kansas City Canning Co. 7-Pepper Jelly
2 ounces Silver Tequila
1 ounce Fresh Lime Juice
1 splash of Saline or 1 pinch of Salt

Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake very well for about 20 seconds. Fine-strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with bell peppers.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!
