Smoky Watermelon-Jalapeno Margarita
Sweet and smoky spicy Watermelon Margaritas are a perfect summer cocktail
- 1 jalapeno chile pepper
- 2 ounces tequila (I used a Blanco, or white, un-aged tequila for this)
- 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 ounce watermelon puree
- ¾ ounce agave nectar/syrup
- Hickory smoked salt for rimming the glass
Muddle the jalapeno in a shaker or a pint glass.
Add the tequila, lime juice, watermelon puree and agave nectar.
Shake with ice and strain into a double old fashioned glass filled with fresh ice and rimmed with hickory smoked salt. Garnish with a slice of watermelon and lime wedge.
