Crafting the Ultimate Spicy Margarita: A Key Lime Hot Sauce and Cilantro Infusion

Margaritas are the quintessential cocktail for those who appreciate the perfect blend of sweet, sour, and salty flavors. But what if you're feeling adventurous and want to elevate your margarita game to a whole new level? Enter the Spicy Margarita, a tantalizing twist on the classic drink.

In this blog, we'll teach you how to craft the perfect Spicy Margarita using our Backwoods Provisions Margarita Key Lime Cilantro Hot Sauce for a unique and unforgettable flavor combination.


To create the ultimate Spicy Margarita, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 oz premium silver tequila
  • 1 oz triple sec or orange liqueur
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz agave nectar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 oz Backwoods Provisions Margarita Key Lime Cilantro hot sauce (adjust to desired spiciness)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves (a small handful)
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wheel and cilantro sprig (for garnish)
  • Kosher salt (for rimming, optional)

Now, let's get to the fun part – mixing your Spicy Margarita.


  1. Prepare Your Glass:

    • Begin by selecting the glass you'd like to use for your margarita. A classic margarita glass or a rocks glass both work well.
    • If you prefer a salted rim, rub a lime wedge around the rim of your glass, then dip it into a plate of kosher salt to create an even, salty rim.

  2. Muddle Cilantro:

    • Take a small handful of fresh cilantro leaves (about 6-8 leaves) and place them in the bottom of your glass.
    • Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently muddle the cilantro leaves. This will release their aromatic oils and add a delightful herbal essence to your drink.

  3. Combine Ingredients:

    • Fill your glass with ice cubes, ensuring it's well-packed.
    • In a shaker, combine the tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice, agave nectar, and margarita key lime hot sauce. Adjust the amount of hot sauce to your preferred level of spiciness.

  4. Shake It Up:

    • Give the mixture a vigorous shake for about 10-15 seconds to thoroughly chill and mix the ingredients.

  5. Strain and Pour:

    • Strain the contents of the shaker into your prepared glass over the ice and muddled cilantro.

  6. Garnish and Serve:

    • Garnish your Spicy Margarita with a lime wheel and a sprig of cilantro for a fresh and appealing presentation.

  7. Enjoy Responsibly:

    • Sip your creation slowly and savor the unique blend of flavors. Remember, this is a spicy cocktail, so take your time to appreciate the heat and the refreshing citrus notes.


The Spicy Margarita, infused with key lime hot sauce and fresh cilantro, is a delightful twist on a beloved classic. This cocktail is sure to impress your guests with its complex and tantalizing flavor profile. The heat from the hot sauce, the herbal aroma of cilantro, and the classic margarita components come together to create a memorable and refreshing drink.

Whether you're enjoying a Spicy Margarita on a hot summer day or sipping it by the fireplace during the colder months, this cocktail is a versatile and exciting addition to your mixology repertoire. So, gather your ingredients and shake up this spicy masterpiece to elevate your margarita experience to new heights. Cheers!
