Smoky Watermelon-Jalapeno Margarita

Author Toni Dash


  • 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


  1. Muddle the jalapeno in a shaker or a pint glass.
  2. 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.
