#1 – Spicy Margarita

Nothing quite says summer like a margarita, and for those who can handle the heat, bringing fresh jalapeños into the mix makes it that much more refreshing. We recommend this recipe that includes orange liquor, fresh limes, and just enough spice. Serve with lots of ice, and enjoy on the boat while having lunch on the flybridge with a view.
