Another tequila cocktail show stopper today from our #CocktailArtist partner Paul Harrison at It's Five O'Clock Somewhere UK! Paul's mixture of fiery ingredients with incredible photography brought him to our attention - we just had to get to know him better. 

We want to see you try this one at home: build the cocktail, take a picture and share it on Instagram while you tag Paul and Pour More - we'd love to share your work!

The Cocktail

Spicy Tequila Cocktail Recipe

This fiery margarita is a bold and spicy take on the classic margarita. Made with tequila, lime juice, Grand Marnier, this cocktail packs a punch with the addition of a muddled hot chili pepper. The heat from the pepper is balanced by the acidity of the lime and the sweetness of the simple syrup.

Served in a salt-rimmed glass with a chili pepper garnish, this margarita is not for the faint of heart. Perfect for those who love a little heat in their drinks and great to pair with spicy food.

The Ingredients

  • 60ml Tequila
  • 30ml Grand Marnier
  • 30ml Fresh lime juice
  • 20ml simple syrup
  • 1 fresh red chili (for the fire!!)

The Build

  1. Chop the chili
  2. Muddle it with the simple syrup!
  3. Add everything else and shake over a good scoop of ice until it's nice and frosty!!
  4. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice pebbles.
  5. I garnished with chilli flakes, a super fresh lime wheel and a whole red chilli
