Cinco de Mayo Wedding Inspo + A Spicy Jalapeño Margarita Recipe

Captured beautifully by Emma Lee Photography, today's styled shoot comes straight to us from the Arizona desert — specifically Saguaro National Park . It provides perfect inspiration for any Southwestern fete you may be dreaming of with its bold color palette and its array of textures that that represent everything fun about the Southwest.

The bouquet designed by Petal Thyme includes real jalapeño peppers, you guys! Oh, and since it's Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, we wanted to share a tasty margarita recipe. Spicy Jalapeño Margarita anyone? We'll take two, please and thank you! (See below for the full recipe!)

From the team, "We shot in the desert at sunset because there is nothing better than an Arizona sunset. We combined different textures, such as cactus prickles (to attach name cards on the tables), vintage leather furniture and serape poofs to create a boho vibe."

• ¼ cup Grand Marnier
• ½ cup fresh lime juice, plus lime slices for garnish

Instructions
• Pour the tequila into a mixing glass.
• Add the sliced jalapeño, ¼ to ½ of it, depending on how spicy you want your margaritas.
• Set aside at room temp for 15 minutes (the longer you let the jalapeño infuse, the spicier it will be).
• Make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine equal parts of sugar and water.
• Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Chill in the fridge until ready to use. You can store any extra in the fridge for up to a few weeks.
• Make the margaritas by mixing the jalapeño-infused tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice and ¼ cup simple syrup. Taste.
• If you’d like a spicier margarita, add more jalapeño and let it it sit a little longer. Pour into glasses and add lime slices and jalapeños for garnish. For a lighter margarita, fill the glasses ½ full and add sparkling water.
