Sometimes you just need a cocktail!
I made some candied jalapeños and when I had canned them all up, I had massive amounts of leftover syrup... I just couldn't throw it away so I canned it up! Fast forward to a Chicago Station Market where jam lover Beth, comes into the kitchen and buys up several jars of the Candied Jalapeños after sampling them, I told her about not wanting to throw away the golden syrup and she offered to buy some off me for... COCKTAILS! So I stuck a label on them and I present to you, Kelle B's Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Syrup!
Well, here is her recipe for Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Margaritas! It's great to garnish with a Candied Jalapeños or two and have a side snack of Cheesy Crack Crackers and you have an afternoon cocktail hour fit for royalty! Thank you Beth for sharing! CHEERS!!!
