Jalapeño Watermelon Margaritas.

A trip to Texas this past spring turned me on to jalapeño margaritas, and a recent dinner at Besito put watermelon margaritas on my mind.  When Breville sent me one of their powerful blenders to try I thought this was the perfect time to combine the two! It’s got the tang of lime, the heat from the jalepeno-infused tequila, sweetness from a bit of agave, and the pureed watermelon gives you a majorly refreshing taste. I blended up a big batch, which was helpful since they were so tasty they disappeared fast. Now, the real question is, how have I lived this long without a blender in my life? Full recipe for your own summer-cocktail enjoyment below! 


  • 1/3-1/2 Cups of Jalapeño-infused Tequila
  • 3 Cups small-cubed Watermelon
  • 4-5 Cups of Ice
  • 1/3 Cup of Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp of Agave


  • Infuse tequila the night before, slice one jalapeño and leave it a bottle of tequila overnight.
  • Combine all ingredients and blend for 60 seconds.
  • Pour into 4 glasses and garnish with slices of jalapeño, lime and watermelon!

Please note: Breville has provided me with a complimentary blender. All opinions, recipes, and images are my own.

    As a Texas, this sound freaking delicious! Jalapenos? Yes please! I just made a watermelon marg the other day, but seeing this now, I’m thinking it definitely could have used a kick to it to balance out the sweetness! Thanks for sharing, will have to try soon 🙂

    Just stumbled upon your blog! Jalapeño and watermelon? I hope the jalapeño is subtle enough or provides a little kick to the super refreshing watermelon flavor. Looks like a great summer drink.
