Smoky Watermelon-Jalapeño Margarita
Ingredients: 1 jalapeño chile pepper, 2 ounces tequila (I used a Blanco, or white, un-aged tequila for this), 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice, 1 ounce watermelon puree, 3/4 ounce agave nectar/syrup, 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.
