Thirsty Thursday--Mango, Peach, and Jalapeno Margaritas

So the other day I was wandering aimlessly through the grocery store thinking about what my cocktail should be for this week.
I knew that I wanted a margarita, fo-sho,
but didn't know exactly what kind.

I have to stop myself every once in a while,
because I would make a margarita for you every single week.
That is how much I love them.

I didn't want the same old margarita,
but something fruity with a little kick.
(for the LSU game-GEAUX TIGERS) 
and I knew that I wanted something smoky and tangy.

Then I saw a few delicious mangoes and peaches.
I couldn't decide between them, 
so I thought why not put them together in one drink.

I added a little of my outta control jalapenos and it was on.

The jalapenos added just the right amount of spice and smoke.
An excellent margarita if I do say so myself.
I also added a few other hints of smokiness by using anejo tequila and Hawaiian Red Alaea salt around the rim.

Mango, Peach, and Jalapeno Margarita

For the fruit mixture:

1 large mango
2 large peaches
1/4 jalapeno (about 1 tablespoon minced)

For the margarita:

3 ounces fruit mixture
3 ounces anejo tequila
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce Grand Marnier
coarse salt
jalapeno slice and lime slice for garnish

To make the fruit mixture:

Peel the mango and peaches and cut into large chunks.  Place into a blender.  Add the jalapeno to taste.  Blend until all fruit and jalapeno are liquified.

To make the margarita:

In a shake filled with ice, combine the fruit mixture, tequila, lime juice, Grand Marnier, and simple syrup.  Shake until well combined.  Pour into a glass filled with ice and rimmed with coarse salt. Garnish with a lime wedge and jalapeno slice.
