A skinny spicy margarita I order at a local restaurant was the inspiration for this recipe. I love the subtle heat of the fresh version, but something about the grilled lime juice and the heat from the jalapenos turn it into more of a “man’s drink”. Grilling the limes give them a slight bitterness which I think is the cause of it, since bitters are added to a lot of “manly” whiskey cocktails. Adding a whole grilled jalapeno as a garnish doesn’t hurt either!
