Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins


  • 1/2 oz agave syrup Optional.
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 5 cubes watermelon
  • 2 oz tequila I prefer reposado. Silver also works great.
  • 2 or 3 slices jalapeño
  • Sugar,salt, and lime zest Optional, to rim the glass.


  • Add your agave, lime juice, and watermelon to a cocktail shaker. Muddle the watermelon well, breaking down the chunks as much as possible.
  • Add in about 3/4 cup ice cubes, jalapeños, and tequila. Cover your shaker tightly, and give it a good shake for about 2 minutes. The longer you shake it, the better those watermelon chunks will be broken down.
  • Rub a lime wedge over the edge of your cocktail glass. On a small plate, combine equal parts salt and sugar, and a bit of lime zest. Press the edge of your cocktail glass in to the sugar/salt mixture.
  • Pour your cocktail in to your glass, and garnish with a small watermelon slice and a couple jalapeño rings. Cheers!


You can also make this in a high powered blender by blending all of the ingredients except the ice, then pour the drink over ice. To make it frozen, blend everything together with the ice.
