If you like Paloma, then consider this Spicy Grapefruit Margarita to be the spicier version of a Paloma. Ridiculously delicious. The freshly squeezed grapefruits make this cocktail unbelievably good. But yes, the star of this Spicy Grapefruit Margarita Cocktail is not the tequila.., it’s the Jalapenos.

What I did was that I used both the canned jalapenos and the fresh ones. I added the juice of the canned ones into the cocktail shaker and mixed it up with fresh jalapenos, silver tequila, fresh grapefruit juice, agave and some lemon juice.

I liked mine a little bit of a stronger kick, so, I didn’t hold myself off on adding the tequila nor the jalapenos.

If you can’t handle the heat from jalapenos, you can totally hold the jalapeno off but trust me when I say this.., a little bit of spiciness actually brings out the flavors of this sweet and spicy margarita.

Summer tastes better with fruity and not so sweet cocktails, no? For me, this summer has been awesome. Tried out a bunch summery and refreshing cocktails like, Watermelon Vodka Cocktail which is again a very uplifting cocktail.

  1. Oh yes!! I totally love spicy margaritas and palomas!! Your recipe looks fabulous and I can’t wait to try this.

  2. These sound really interesting! I love grapefruit and jalapenos but I have never thought to have them together!

  3. My hubby is currently doing a nutrition challenge with our local Crossfit box and he had to give up alcohol for 30 days. While I love that his eating habits are on point. . .I do miss the occasional cocktail. And margaritas happen to be my favorite drink to unwind with on the weekend. Such an interesting twist to use grapefruit. Once this nutrition challenge wraps up. . .I’d be interested in giving it a try.

  4. Wow – I love a Paloma, so this would be even better! I can just see serving this alongside a taco bar or any other fun Mexican night. Delicious!

  5. Yessssss. I am a margarita fanatic but I only recently tried a spicy version. I was shocked at how much I loved it, especially since I don’t do spicy. I love grapefruit too so I cannot wait to try this out!

  6. I first had a spicy margarita in Mexico and could never recreate it. I will have to give this one a try and see. I am sure it taste just as good, if not better

  7. Wow! I wish I could reach right through my screen and snag one of those beautiful tasty cocktails. They’re perfect for Sunday brunch or at the end of a very long day! 🙂

  8. I have mixed feelings about this. I love grapefruit and margaritas and cocktails (haha) but I can’t handle too much spice. Maybe I can handle it if it’s mixed with a drink.
