How to Make a Rodriguez Sour

How to Cocktail: Rodriguez Sour

Fiery jalapeño syrup kicks up this sweet and fruity tequila cocktail.

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a long slice of jalapeño.

*Jalapeño Syrup


  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 4 Jalapeño peppers, roughly chopped

Add the water and sugar to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves completely. Add the jalapeños, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture into a blender. Puree until smooth and fine-strain into a storage container. Let cool completely and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 weeks.

    Made this as is and the Green Chartreuse was a bit overpowering. Cut it by half and it was delicious although it could also use a bit more "sour" this is a nice alternative to a Margarita.
