Step 1 Make the simple syrup by combining the Swerve (or Allulose) with the water in a pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer until reduced and it has the texture of syrup. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Let it cool down. You will use just about 1/4 of it. Store any leftover syrup in a jar for future use.

Step 2Slice the jalapeño pepper. Sprinkle some sea salt on a plate. Cut a wedge of lime and rub it around the edge of a glass, then turn the glass upside down and dip into salt so that the salt coats the rim. Set aside while you make the margarita.

Step 3Squeeze the limes.

Step 4Place the jalapeño into a cocktail shaker and muddle until broken down. Add in some ice, the freshly pressed lime juice, 1/4 of the simple syrup, and tequila. Shake until combined and strain into a small glass over ice.

Step 5Garnish with an extra slice of jalapeño and lime if desired.
