Notes

For the mango-lime purée, I blended four bags of frozen mango slices (I used Trader Joe’s) and the juice from two limes.

For the jalapeño-thyme simple syrup, I combined 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water, a jalapeño pepper (chopped finely and seeded), and three sprigs of thyme. I boiled the contents for 30 seconds and stirred until the sugar dissolved, then allowed the syrup to cool, and strained the contents.

While the above recipe is for one drink, the purée and simple syrup are for an entire party.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces Avión tequila
  • Jalapeño-thyme simple syrup
  • 1 ½ ounces mango-lime purée

Directions

In a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, combine the Jalapeño-thyme simple syrup, mango-lime purée, and tequila. Shake until cold, then strain into a tall glass prepared with a few ice cubes. Top with seltzer and garnish with a lime round.

Jalapeño Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Jalapeño Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
