Ingredients

  • 5 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup*
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno-infused silver tequila**

Instructions

  • Place watermelon cubes and lime juice in a blender and mix until smooth.
  • Using a fine mesh strainer and a spatula, pour the watermelon puree through (into a bowl) and press down with the spatula to strain out any pulp. Discard pulp.
  • Pour watermelon puree into a pitcher or back into the blender and add the simple syrup and jalapeno-infused tequila. Stir or blend to mix.
  • Serve over ice, garnished with limes, jalapeno slices, and watermelon cubes, if desired.

Notes

*to make simple syrup, combine 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in a small pot over medium heat. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat and allow to cool. 
**To make your own jalapeno-infused tequila: Combine 2 cups of silver tequila with 1 jalapeno, sliced for 2-24 hours, depending on how spicy you want it. Remove jalapeno and strain out seeds, and it's ready to use!
