I am a huge fan of margaritas.  I especially love sipping them on patio on a nice, summer day.  So when I saw this one in the latest issue of Bon Appetit magazine I was intrigued, habanero chiles in margaritas? 

What do you think, yes or no? 

Spicy grapefruit margarita (recipe from Bon Appetit)


2 cups plus 2 tablespoons tequila
1-2 habanero chiles, halved
Kosher salt
6 cups fresh pink grapefruit juice


Mix tequila and chiles in a large pitcher. Let steep 3 hours, or longer if a spicier tequila is desired. Discard chiles. Cover; chill.

Pour enough water onto a small plate to cover. Pour enough salt onto another small plate to cover by 1/4″. Dip rims of eight 12-ounce. glasses into water, then into salt to lightly coat; fill with ice. Add grapefruit juice to pitcher with tequila. Fill with ice; stir until cold. Divide drink among glasses.
