For the spiced tequila

750ml bottle silver tequila (recommended: Herradura)
1 fresh orange habanero chilli pepper, (may substitute jalapeno or serrano)
45ml spiced silver tequila, recipe above
15ml orange brandy
2 limes, juiced
1 tbsp agave syrup
1) Make the spiced tequila: Cut the habanero in half (do not touch your eyes after handling the chilli pepper). Push the 2 halves into the bottle of tequila. Close the lid and let it sit for at least 24 hours. You can leave the chilli pepper in the bottle until the tequila is gone.

2) For the margaritas: In a shaker or pitcher add a handful of ice, the tequila, orange brandy, lime juice and the agave syrup. Shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass and serve.
Cooks Note: Take a sip and feel the burn go from the roof of your mouth down your throat. Your palate is now open and ready to enjoy your meal!
