Perfecting the perfect margarita can be a bit challenging. Believe me though if there is one thing we know it's a good margarita! When you're born and raised in San Antonio you learn a few things.
This spicy and sweet Jalapeno Watermelon Margarita is one of those margarita recipes that everyone should have on hand. It's a perfect drink for summer. It wakes up your taste buds with that kick of jalapeno and the sweetness of the watermelon just finishes off the drink perfectly. Katy is our resident bartender in our household so she uses nothing but the freshest ingredients. Fresh watermelon is the key to this drink. Just cut up your watermelon in chunks and blend on high speed. When the watermelon is pureed sieve it through a strainer so you get nothing but that beautiful watermelon juice. As for us we only added one round slice of seedless jalapeno, but if your feeling a bit more daring you can always use two slices.
Its been Style Dossier tested and mother approved (literally) so you know it has to be good. We cant wait for you to try it! Let us know what you guys think!
