STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE WATERMELON-JALAPENO MARGARITA

STEP 1: MAKE THE CHILI-SALT RUB TO RIM THE GLASSES

Mix the salt and chili powder in a shallow dish

STEP 2: RIM THE GLASSES

Wet the rims by wiping them with a lime wedge, then dip or roll it into the chili salt.

STEP 3: MAKE WATERMELON JUICE

Blend the watermelon cubes with a hand blender or blend them in a mixer.

STEP 4: MUDDLE THE JALAPENO WITH LIME JUICE & TEQUILA

Remove most of the white membrane and seeds to reduce the heat and create a well-balanced flavor.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle few pieces of de-seeded jalapeno with 2 ounces lime juice and 4 oz of tequila

STEP 5: ADD THE WATERMELON JUICE TO THE COCKTAIL SHAKER

Add some ice cubes and watermelon juice to the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.

STEP 6: POUR INTO THE GLASSES

Strain into glasses, garnish with watermelon slices and enjoy!

VARIATIONS

  • Enjoy this cocktail as a spiked watermelon margarita pop. Blend everything and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds.
  • If you don’t want to make it a non-spicy watermelon margarita, then substitute the jalapeno with other fruits that pair well with watermelon and can be muddled in as well – Try blueberries, mango, raspberries, or strawberries.
  • Jalapeño simple syrup can also be used.
  • Give the margarita an herbal twist. Toss a few basil, mint, or parsley leaves into the shaker when muddling.
  • Instead of chili powder, mix the salt with freshly ground black pepper. Try dipping the watermelon garnishes in the salt-pepper blend for a tasty bite.
  • If you don’t have fresh watermelon, you can use watermelon juice.

  1. I made this delicious cocktail because I had more watermelon that the container I was trying to fit it in would hold. So I used the extra and blended it in my ninja and strained it. It was so easy and yummy. I loved the chili and salt rim also. I used the leftover stuff in the strainer and made “adult popsicles”.
    Thank you for the tasty recipe!
