Instead of infusing blanco tequila with jalapeños, YaVe uses their reposado expression to deliver a spirit with rich, peppery spice. The flavor is complex and smooth with a roasted pepper flavor on the nose and tingling spicy flavor on the palate. Try mixing it in a Paloma or Pineapple Margarita for a fruity, zesty tipple.
If you prefer your jalapeño tequila to be tempered with a tropical sweetness, then this pineapple-infused bottling from Dulce Vida is your best bet. They start with 100 percent Blue Weber agave tequila and infuse and blend it with a mix of sweet pineapple and spicy jalapeño. Top it with Topo Chico and a squeeze of lime for an easy refreshing beverage.
Another peppery reposado expression, Agave Loco Pepper Cured Tequila is aged for six months in ex-bourbon barrels then infused with jalapeño, habanero and serrano peppers, along with three varieties of sweet peppers. The palate is peppers and wood with a smooth finish that doesn’t linger uncomfortably long. Try this piquant tequila in a Bloody Maria for an extra rich take on the drink.
This is the perfect jalapeño tequila to drink if you like a touch of spice but aren’t a serious hot head. Sino steeps jalapeños in their 100 percent Blue Weber agave tequila for six days prior to filtration and bottling for a zesty, cocktail-ready spirit. The flavor is fresh and bright with notes of lime and a sweet-spicy, agave-rich finish.
