The recipe, which is from the November  2012 issue of Southern Living Magazine, is an easy mixture of tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur (I use Triple Sec or Cointreau), powdered sugar, and green pepper jelly.

And I don’t know what it is, but lately every time I make Margaritas, I forget to salt the rims. I’m going to remember next time, I promise.

For Pepper Jelly, I like to use Braswell’s Jelly Green Pepper. You can spread the leftover pepper jelly on a block of cream cheese for an easy appetizer or snack.
