Scorpion Stinger Margarita



  • ½“ section Jalapeno Pepper
  • 2 sprigs Cilantro
  • 1½ oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Agave Nectar

  • In the glass of a Boston Shaker, muddle the jalapeno pepper and cilantro in the tequila. Add the remaining ingredients, with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a Margarita Glass.

  • Garnish with an edible (or plastic) scorpion.

Garnishing this drink with a live scorpion might make it one of our most dangerous cocktails – just ahead of the French 75! Though we wouldn’t use a live scorpion, we do garnish with an edible scorpion (or, if not available, a plastic scorpion) for fun. The Scorpion Stinger is a delicious margarita with a sharp sting of heat from the jalapeno, which gives it its name. This is a fun and delightful cocktail to enjoy with any Southwestern or Mexican food, or great as a Summertime sipper. Enjoy!
