Spicy Martini

organicfood's picture
In this remarkably multifaceted martini, a few teensy slivers of jalapeo transform what would be a tasty but ho-hum strawberry margarita into a modern classic. And while you're sipping, try this trick: Concentrate on the taste of each individual ingredient, and you will be able to transport the jalapeno from the merest suggestion of heat to center stage
Ingredients
  Organic strawberries 2 , hulled
  Peeled seeded organic jalapeno chile slivers 4
  Freshly squeezed organic lemon juice 3⁄4 Ounce
  Organic reposado tequila 1 1⁄2 Ounce
  Organic agave nectar 1⁄2 Ounce
Directions

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries, 3 of the jalapeno slivers, and the lemon juice until well mashed. Add the tequila and agave nectar, and fill the shaker with ice cubes. Shake vigorously, then strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the remaining jalapeno sliver.
