How do I make spicy tequila?
You can do this two ways. I prefer to pour 2 cups of tequila in a re-sealable container with 1 jalapeño (cut in half) and leaving it overnight. You can take out the seeds before doing this if you’re worried it will get too spicy! Or, if you need spicy tequila quick, simply shake tequila and cut jalapeños in a shaker to give the tequila some extra heat!
