Spicy Margarita


One week no cooking only nursing. Kids and I have been down with the seasonal flu and looks like finally we are on the road to recovery.


My group of foodie friends were given chillies as a challenge and with everything happening thought I would miss the deadline. Had big plans for this spicy ingredients but had to settle for a simple outcome


Presenting Spicy Margarita that has just the right amount of birds eye chilli to make ur eyes water. A rim of paprika salt gives that zingy finish.

Paprika salt – crushed sea salt mixed with chilli paprika powder
