The margarita itself is a blood orange margarita. That blood orange flavor matches really well with spice. It is subtle and fruity but not overwhelmingly sweet. The spice we will add will be from jalapenos.

However, you will want to remove the seeds from the jalapenos before you use them in this recipe. The seeds are where most of the spice comes from in jalapenos.
