Water this Watermelon

Updated: Jul 28, 2022

Happy #ThirstyThursday everyone! This week I'm all about this big watermelon I got over the weekend and then proceeded to eat half and use the rest for cocktails. To start, I created a watermelon jalepeno margarita that is perfectly refreshing and spicy. This margarita was something that just came to me and made me so excited to try it out.

Sweet and Spicy



2 oz Watermelon

2 oz Tequila

1 oz Grand Marnier

1 oz Lime Juice

Four slices of Jalapeño (or less depending on your spice level and the spiciness of the jalapeño)

1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Garnish: Salt Rim and Pickled Watermelon Rind

Recipe: In a cocktail shaker, muddle the jalepeno slices and the simple syrup. Add ice then the rest of the ingredients. Give it a nice shake and pour into a chilled margarita glass with ice. This is a perfect summer margarita. The refreshing watermelon balances out the spiciness of the jalepeno. Perfect for a poolside party or a barbecue. I always add the salt rim because it matches my relationship with tequila and brings me to the beach. I pickled the watermelon with a quick pickle which makes the watermelon edible and a fun texture play with your cocktail.
