Jalapeño Margarita

What do you do when it's Cinco de Mayo, and you don't get off work until 7pm?  You rush home and make yourself a big 'ol margarita and drink it on your porch as the sun goes down, that's what.  Because let's be honest.  Any margarita made in the comfort of your own kitchen is going to be better than whatever dribbles out of the machine at your local Tex-Mex restaurant.  Warning: this puppy is strong.

Jalapeño Margarita

2 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 ounces good tequila
1 ounce Grand Marnier
½ ounce jalapeño liqueur (or more, to taste)

Combine all ingredients and pour over ice into a margarita glass.  Drink and enjoy.
