Cinco de Mayo requires Tequila or Mexican Beer. I made a copycat Mia’s Brisket Tacos the other night and wanted to enjoy with a margarita. I used jalapeno for my brisket but kept the tops, seeds and ribs and infused that heat into my simple syrup.

My simple syrup uses organic sugar so it’s caramel in color. I also don’t go as heavy on the sugar so my simple syrup ratio is about 2:1 water over sugar. I love Tajin seasoning because while it has some chili flavor it also brings a nice lime tang to it. So I rimmed my glass with it.

Take your favorite tequila and mix in fresh juiced limes, the jalapeno simply syrup to your portions. We go heavy on tequila and use the simple syrup and lime juice in equal parts.
