Ingredients for Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Margarita:

  • 1 1/2 ounce Tequila 1800 Silver
  • 1 ounce Vodka Svedka Grapefruit Jalapeño
  • 3/4 ounce Grapefruit Juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 wedge Grapefruit
  • 1 Jalapeño sliced

Ingredients for Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Rim Salt:

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder Mexican-Style



  • Using a saucer, mix salt, sugar, & chili powder together. Smear top of the glass with a bit of honey or grapefruit juice. Twist the rim of the glass in Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Rim Salt mixture. Set aside.
  • In a cocktail shaker, add tequila, Svedka Grapefruit Jalapeño Vodka, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, and two ice cubes.
  • Secure with a fitted cap and shake vigorously for 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Strain contents into a Mojito glass filled with crushed ice, because really... who can keep a top-heavy margarita glass from tipping over after they've had one?
  • Garnish with a wedge of grapefruit and jalapeño slices.
  • Serve.
