Lemon Cranberry Jalapeño Margojito

By

If a margarita and a mojito had a baby made with lemon instead of lime, you’d get this sweet and spicy cocktail creation. Seedless lemons are perfect for muddling because there are no seeds to worry about.

Instructions

  1. If rimming the glass, combine the lemon zest, Tajin seasoning, and salt on a small plate.
  2. Run a lemon wedge around the opening of a Collins glass, then dip the glass in the salt blend to coat the rim.
  3. Add ice and set the prepped glass aside while creating the cocktail.
  4. Combine the lemon, cranberries, jalapeño, and sugar in a cocktail shaker.
  5. Muddle to gently crush the fruit and release the juices. Add the tequila and ice to the cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds.
  6. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass, then top off with lemon-lime soda.
  7. Garnish with a lemon wheel, jalapeño slice, and cranberry on a toothpick.

Make it a mocktail:

Follow the instructions above, except double the lemon and cranberries and omit the liquor. Top off the lemon, cranberry, and jalapeño mixture with lemon-lime soda.
