Recipe: Pepper Jelly Margaritas

By on December 12, 2012 in Recipes with 7 Comments

Southern Living had a wonderful round-up of pepper jelly recipes in their December 2012 issue and it has me wondering- Is pepper jelly becoming in vogue? No longer relegated to an existence on a block of cream cheese at baby showers and bridal luncheons? I hope so because it just might be my favorite condiment.

The recipe that most caught my eye was this one for a Margarita flavored with Green Pepper Jelly. After making it this past weekend, I think it may become my go to way to make Margaritas. The tangy green pepper jelly turns it into a sweet heat treat. Now if this winter weather would just be replaced by some heat.

Warning- you’ll get a workout squeezing 1 full cup of lime juice. It’s a lot of limes. Best to make your husband do it.

  1. Place all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir with a whisk until sugar and pepper jelly are dissolved.
