A Spicy Margarita, this one is a great combo of sweet and heat!
A good cocktail is a study in melding contrasting flavors into a combination that pleases your senses. One of the most fun flavor combinations is taking sweet and heat and letting those two flavors play off of each other. This cocktail takes the sweetness of fresh peaches and pairs it up with some serious heat from a hot sauce made with datil peppers by our friends over at Crazy Gringa Hot Sauces.
We recently stopped by their booth at the Omaha Farmer’s market and they mentioned that they were big fans of of our cocktails but had one that they thought would be right up our alley. We got a bottle of their Peach Datil Pepper hot sauce and their secret Datil Peach Margarita recipe!

Crazy Gringa Hot Sauce is a family owned and operated business that started in 2011 when the Gringa, aka Mary Currant, had a huge harvest of spicy habanero peppers. Needing something to do with the peppers, she whipped up a batch of hot sauce that was a hit with her family and friends. Made start to finish by the family in Omaha, they have expanded into four different sauces plus a number of special limited edition sauces, one of which is the peach datil pepper hot sauce used in this recipe. Having the chance to use a great local product in one of our recipes is always exciting to us and when the folks at Crazy Gringa gave us a bottle to play with, we jumped at the chance to partner with them. Make sure you stop by their booth at the Omaha Farmer’s Market or hit up their website and let them know that we sent you!
While the hot sauce by itself is quite spicy, when paired up with the sweet peaches and tart lime, the heat is tempered into a pleasant slow burn. The blended fresh peaches provide a great color and the salty sweet rim really brings out the flavors in the drink.
