What’s a Cinco De Mayo party without the perfect cocktail?! These delicious Watermelon Jalapeño Margaritas are the perfect hit of spice, salt, and sweetness and will surely be the LIFE of your party! This margarita is made with juicy watermelon, roasted jalapeños, lime juice, agave syrup … TEQUILA (of course 😉) and finished off with pretty pink Himalayan salt
Feel free to play around with this recipe and adjust as you like! If you’re typically not a fan of heat you can skip the roasted jalapeños all-together but if you’re staying true to the recipe I definitely suggest to remove the seeds and the skin from the roasted jalapeños before adding them to your blender cause my first batch was SPICYYY!!!
If you prefer to have this marg less on the sweet side, feel free to skip the agave syrup if you prefer a cocktail that’s more on the tart side! Don’t be afraid to make a few batches and taste test along the way … just be warned … you might not make your Cinco De Mayo party if you do that … 😂
Ps. If you REALLY want to ramp up your Cinco De Mayo cocktails serve your margaritas with a slice of watermelon on the side OR hollow out a mini watermelon and pour the margarita inside for your guests to sip on … the only trouble with these is the fact that you can’t put them down … or wait a minute … IS that a problem for a party?? LOL!!
