I enjoy a spicy margarita from time to time, but I don't particularly enjoy large chunks of jalapeno floating around in my glass, clogging up my straw. Luckily, momfilter has a great tip for imparting maximum spicy goodness without adding any annoying chunks.
All you need is a microplane (which we hope you already own) and a drink. Simply grab a jalapeno or habanero or whatever pepper you prefer and — with gloved hands — grate it. Swirl the grater directly into the glass, and presto change-o: your previously un-spiced libation is now alive with the magical oils of your favourite pepper.
