2ouncestequila(I used a Blanco, or white, un-aged tequila for this)
1ouncefreshly squeezed lime juice
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.
Make watermelon puree by putting chunks of fresh watermelon in a blender and processing on the puree setting. For an 8-cocktail large batch:
16 ounces silver or blanco tequila
8 ounces watermelon puree
8 ounces fresh lime juice
6 ounces agave nectar
a glass container larger then 38-ounces
In a large jar or container muddle the jalapenos. Follow the recipe as written above, sealing the container with ice and vigorously shaking it. Strain into a pitcher and pour into rimmed glasses with ice for serving.
