happy hour…

in an effort to hang onto that summer feeling for a few more weekends (at least!), i bring you a cocktail recipe, courtesy of my montana-living friend, tammy. she made these watermelon-jalapeño margaritas for me in july and they honestly taste like summer in a glass. (hello, #thingsimaddictedto)

here’s how:

blend one medium watermelon + 1-2 jalapeños (save a few slices for garnish!) in a vitamix or regular ol’ blender until liquid. strain and set aside. you can do this a day or two ahead and keep it in the fridge, too.

to serve, combine 2 oz. premium tequila and 6 oz. watermelon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice, shake it up, and pour into a salt-rimmed rocks glass. add your jalapeño garnish… maybe a squeeze of lime… and it’s done!

if you really want to go nuts, make a pitcher using this ratio: 10-12 oz. premium tequila to 32 oz. watermelon juice.
