Jalapeno Martini Recipe

Basic Jalapeño Martini

Why spice up a classic?

Why not! Think of this basic jalapeño martini recipe as a twist on a basic dirty martini. Instead of olive juice from the jar you substitute the pickled jalapeño juice that you can get from any jar of pickled jalapeños. These are available at nearly every grocery store. Add more or less to control the amount of tang and spice you get in the cocktail.

This is a terrific cocktail to add a twist to a martini party. It tastes great, takes few additional ingredients, and it’s super easy to make.

Easy Pico De Gallo Recipe

Here’s an easy pico de gallo recipe that takes no time at all to make –  from prep to table in under 20 minutes.  That’s a lot of flavor in a little time. We love this salsa fresca as a spicy side (a great alternative to a plain Jane salad), and it’s also super tasty on top of tacos, burritos, and other Mexican dishes.

If you want the full spicy flavor to set in, let it refrigerate for a few hours prior to serving. And don’t be afraid to bump up from a jalapeño to a serrano pepper if you want a pico de gallo with a bigger heat.
