  • Prep: 6 min
The Serrano Margarita is a kicked-up version of our classic favorite. Serrano peppers add heat that pairs oh so well with the cool, fresh lime juice. A sugared rim on this cocktail helps cut the spice.


  • 1 1/2 oz Silver tequila
  • 1 oz Fresh Cointreau or Triple Sec Liqueur
  • 1/3 Serrano Pepper with its Seeds
  • Few Pinches of Sugar


  • Shaker
  • Muddler
  • Lowball glass

How to Mix

  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, agave nectar and serrano pepper and muddle to release the heat of the pepper
  2. Prepare a glass by rubbing lime on the rim and dipping into a plate of sugar
  3. Fill rimmed glass with ice
  4. Shake cocktail to mix thoroughly, then pour through strainer into glass, over ice
