Wake up those taste buds!
Here’s a tasty twist on the traditional tequila sunrise. The pop of jalapeño pepper will certainly perk you right up. Keep the seeds in when muddling the hot pepper slice for a little additional heat.
Looking for something even spicier? Upgrade that chili to serrano pepper. It comes in double or more the heat of the jalapeño, with a very comparable taste. Now that’ll wake you up!
