Are you ready for Cinco De Mayo? Celebrate with
this delicious twist on a classic margarita, the 100% organic "Earth, Sun &
Fire" cocktail from
The Organic “Earth, Sun
Tools Needed: jar, muddler, cocktail
shaker, small cooking strainer.
To prepare the organic jalapeno infused
tequila: (Infusion time: 24 hours)
- Pour half of a bottle of organic tequila into a
jar that can be completely sealed. Slice 2 organic Jalapeno Peppers lengthwise
in half and place in the tequila. Seal the jar and place in a dark area (pantry
or cupboard). Let sit for 24 hours then use a small strainer to remove the
jalapenos and their seeds. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Tip: I like to use 1/2 of a bottle of
organic tequila. That way, if the tequila is too spicy for you or a guest, you
can dilute it with the remaining tequila.
To make the organic “Earth, Sun & Fire” :
Peel apart 1 organic tangerine and place half (including peel) into a cocktail
shaker. Slice an organic lime and add half to the cocktail shaker with a
squeeze. Add 1/2 ounce of organic agave nectar. Muddle the ingredients very
well, until the juice of the tangerine and lime have been released. Add 2 ounces
of jalapeno infused organic tequila and about 3/4 cup of ice. Shake well and
pour into a rocks glass.

beautiful and fun addition to cocktails (not to mention they are eco-friendly

Health Benefits: Like oranges, tangerines
are full of Vitamin C, dietary fiber and B vitamins. They are super low in
calories and help to boost the immune system. Organic limes are natural
fat-burners and also a good source of nutrients and vitamins. Jalapeno peppers
are a natural aphrodisiac and even help to boost metabolism. Does it get much
Organic Choice: The peels of citrus fruits
are what contain and absorb the majority of chemical sprays used to grow them.
In this cocktail especially, since the peels are kept on the tangerine and lime,
buying organic is essential to protect your health.
