"When Death & Co opened, our kitchen served a dish of braised short ribs topped with jalapeño peppers and pomegranate molasses. I liked this combination, so I made it into a drink." - Phil Ward
A tasty drink but unclear if it outshines a classic spicy margarita. The full 2oz of jalapeño-infused blanco tequila can definitely be too spicy for some; it really depends on how spicy your infusion is. You can always split the base with half normal blanco or even try a reposado. If I made this again, I might up the pomegranate molasses to a full teaspoon and halve the simple syrup to 1/2 oz. It came off a little sweet and the pomegranate was mostly lost.
