Happy  National Watermelon Day!

This Watermelon Jalapeno Margarita is a spicy and sweet cocktail that you will be begging for all summer long! I made a batch today and just can't get enough. 

Yield: 4 drinks 
Prep Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 0 minutes 
Total: 10 minutes 

3 cups of pureed watermelon 
1 tablespoon of sugar
3/4 cups of tequila (1 cup if you like it strong!)
1/4 cup orange liqueur 
1/2 cup lime juice
2 jalapeƱos sliced (leave the seeds for a hotter drink!) 
Slices of lime for garnish 
Kosher salt for cup rim

Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir gently. Press a few of the jalapeƱos with your spoon to add a little extra spice. Add a few ice cubes to a glass for immediate drinks or let the pitcher chill in the fridge for a few minutes. Before drinking, add optional salt to the rim of your glass. Enjoy!
