Watermelon Jalapeño Margaritas
A balance of sweet and spicy - this watermelon jalapeño margarita is a great way to keep cool.
- lime wedges and tajin or salt for rim of glasses
- 1-2 jalapeños, sliced
- 4 cups watermelon
- 1½ cups tequila
- ¼ cup orange liquor
- juice of 2 limes
- optional garnish: small watermelon slices, lime wedges, jalapeño slices
Rim of each glass with a lime wedge and tajin or salt.
Muddle two or more jalapeño slices (depending on how much heat you want in your margarita) in the bottom of each glass then top with ice.
In a blender, combine watermelon, tequila, orange liquor, and lime juice. Pour into glasses, garnish as desired and serve.
- I muddle the jalapeños with the end of a wooden spoon.
- You can cut a watermelon in half and scoop your four cups out with the measuring cup itself.
