Spicy Homemade Jalapeno Infused Tequila

Make your own homemade jalapeno infused tequila

Tequila is reasonably versatile, contrary to popular beliefs. Most people think of one thing when they think tequila… shots. Get it over as quickly as possible. I am here to convince you that tequila can inspire your creativity as much as any other type of liquor.

I find that silver tequila is the best for infusions. Of course you can infuse with pretty much anything, however, I find that tequila + spice creates a smokiness to the drink that is unique and refreshing. I love smoky tequilas especially mezcal, and I find this to come close to the same effect that mezcal has in cocktails/margaritas.

What you need:

  • Jalapenos ( 3-4)
  • Silver Tequila (30 Fl oz)
  • an air tight container ( I used a decanter, but you can use an old liquor bottle, mason jars, old wine bottle)

 

Method:

  1. Slice the jalapenos as finely as possible. Save the seeds!
  2. Add the tequila
  3. Infuse as long as you need. The longer you keep it in the more concentrated it gets. I don’t ever take the seeds out, since I like to dilute it with other liquors.  Some prefer to only infuse for a few hours to make it a stand alone liquor.
