At New York’s Delicatessen — the Latin-fusion diner from them what brung you Cafeteria — the barman Damon has several tricks up his sleeve. Among them is a succulent jalapeno margarita, with just the right amount of kick and almost certainly no salmonella. And if you’re lucky, it comes with a special garnish too.
• 1 1/2 oz. Partida tequila, house-infused with jalapeno peppers • 3/4 oz. agave nectar • 3/4 oz. lime juice • juice from an orange wedge
Mix and serve on the rocks with ancho-chile salted rim, with candied jalapeno garnish. $12.
