Mixology 101

(makes 1 drink)

A little spice added to today’s cocktails is all the rage. And fresh mint and cooling watermelon play a sexy counterpoint to the jalapeno in this summertime tequila refresher.

1 lime wedge
¼ cup watermelon chunks
3 sprigs fresh mint
1 sliced fresh jalapeno chile
1 ½ ounces tequila
¼ ounce melon liqueur
1 ½ ounces pineapple juice
Garnish: small watermelon triangle

Squeeze lime wedge into cocktail shaker, then drop in wedge. Add all other ingredients (except garnish). Fill a large glass with ice, then transfer ice to shaker and shake vigorously. Pour entire contents into large glass. Garnish with melon wedge.


  1. I'm not sure how that would taste, but I'm pretty sure for the picture they just got someone to vomit in that glass. Gross.

  2. i had a very similar drink once at benjy's and it almost made me vomit, but then i had another and i was fine

  3. Maybe you just vomited it back in your glass and thought it was a new drink...

    As long as I never have to drink the Chillantro again, I'm willing to try any drink.
