A lot of tequila shots happened last night. And although shots can be fun, it is not my preferred method of consuming any alcohol. So, I did a little 'googling' when I got home for some tasty alternatives to the tequila shot. There are many options as you could imagine, but one stood out in particular: the spicy grapefruit margarita!
Now, they want you to make your own spicy tequila by steeping hot peppers in the booze for at least 3 hours. I would suggest at least overnight if you really want some heat and I would also suggest using pequin peppers (dried is ok!). My mother-in-law made some crazy fire vodka with the pequin peppers and I can't imagine using anything else!
