Lime & Jalapeno Margarita

  • 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice1/2 large green jalapeño pepper, sliced thin
  • 4 ounces silver tequila
  • 2 ounces honey
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 2 lime wedges for garnish


  1. In the bottom of a pitcher, muddle the jalapeño slices with the lime juice. 10-12 presses with a muddler or back of a wooden spoon will do the trick.
  2. Add tequila and honey. Stir or shake in bottle to combine thoroughly – or until all the honey is dissolved.
  3. Pour the sea salt in the bottom of a small bowl. Dip the top of each serving glass in the margarita mixture, let it drain off, then press the top of the glass into the bowl of salt. Gently tap the glass to knock off any excess.
  4. Fill each glass with fresh ice and pour in margarita mix.
  5. Garnish with the fresh lime & enjoy!

Clean Eats with Remi


We’re back with our second installment of New Year, New You. This week’s blog is brought to you by Remi Ishizuka of rrayyme. Health nut and fitness enthusiast, her Instagram serves as daily motivation for the S’well team to eat well and stay in shape. We’re so excited that she could tell us about her goals for the year and share a recipe that we can’t wait to blend up!


My goal this year is to stick to a 90/10 rule. I plan to eat clean, healthy and nutritious home cooked meals 90% of the time and indulge the other 10% in whatever I want. This has worked for me in the past, and as long as I dedicate time to meal prepping each week, I know I will be able to stick to it. It keeps me motivated knowing that I feel good when I’m in my routine. I feel better, I’m happier, I have more energy, and I’m more productive. Cheers to a healthy + active 2016!”
