THE RECIPE: TEQUILA WATERMELON + JALAPEÑO REFRESHER

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

3 parts watermelon puree

1 part silver tequila (we like milagro)

1/2 part fresh lime juice

seltzer

sliced jalapeño

coarse sea salt

ice

agave nectar (optional)

 

HOW TO MAKE IT:

To make the watermelon puree, put seedless chunks or watermelon into a blender and pulse.

Next, push the puree through a mesh sieve to smooth. (If using a vitamix, this step is not necessary). 

In a large pitcher or bowl, stir together the watermelon puree, tequila, and lime juice. 

For extra sweetness, add agave nectar to taste. 

To serve, rim the glass with sea salt and pour watermelon mixture into a glass over ice. Top glass with seltzer and sliced jalapeño. 

Enjoy!
