Spicy Watermelon Margaritas

What you need:

  • Fresh watermelon
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 16oz tequila
  • triple sec
  • lime juice
  • agave nectar

What to do:

  1. Infuse your tequila by chopping jalapeños and placing them in a jar with your tequila. I did 1 jalapeño for 16oz tequila. Let sit for at least 24-72 hours to infuse.
  2. When you’re ready to make the cocktail, rim a glass with agave nectar and tajín. Place it in the freezer to allow the rim to set without running down the glass.
  3. Meanwhile, blend 3/4 cup fresh watermelon to form a juice.
  4. In a shaker filled halfway with ice, combine 1.5 oz infused tequila (could easily avoid spicy by using plain tequila), all the fresh watermelon juice, 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz triple sec, .5 oz agave nectar. Shake vigorously.
  5. Pour the blended mixture into your rimmed glass with ice and garnish with extra jalapeños and watermelon. Enjoy!
