Jalapeno Chocolate Margaritas | Fabtastic Eas It’s Friday, you deserve a Margarita!

I totally cannot take credit for this masterpiece. These Jalapeno Chocolate Margaritas are definitely the brain child of my husband. He used to be a bartender through college, and seriously, the man sure can make a drink. He’s basically the resident bartender at all parties we have ever hosted and attended. Always. He’s got a heavy hand, people appreciate that.

He makes these crazy concoctions for us quite often. Some are fantastic, and some are…duds. Sorry babe. But THESE ones, these were not duds, at all. Before I keep raving about his mad skills, you have to like chocolate to like these, obviously. But just so you know, they really do taste like chocolate. But don’t worry, they’re not overly spicy.

The Jalapeno simmers in the chocolate syrup anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour…depending what kind of time you’ve got on your hands. And it adds just a little kick! But don’t you worry, it’s there. While it is not overwhelmingly burning your tongue off, it will definitely warm you up!

The addition of the citrus, totally tones this down from dessert, to refreshing. This Margarita is so perfect for this time of year. While it’s not warm enough yet to be swimming in Margaritas 24/7, it warms you up, is reminiscent of Summer, and is SO tasty.

The chocolate syrup makes a pretty good amount, about 2 cups or so. The recipe for the Margaritas is written to serve 4. But the chocolate syrup will get you a lot further than that if you’re planning on making them for a crowd. If you’re not using it all right away, it stores perfectly in the fridge. Mind you, it will thicken up a little bit sitting in there. But it’s just so good, I could eat it with a spoon. Or make muffins out of it. Or drizzle the syrup over pancakes. Seriously, these Margaritas are something you want. ASAP.
