Tequila and watermelon is a woefully underused combination.


  • 1 Jalapeño pepper slice
  • 3 Watermelon cubes (about ⅓ cup)
  • 2 oz Silver tequila
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 oz Agave syrup


  1. Muddle the jalapeño and watermelon in a shaker.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake until well-chilled.

  3. Fine-strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
