  • 3 ounces Trader Joe's Jalapeño Limeade

Instructions
 

  • Wet the rim of two rocks glass with the edge of a lime wedge, then dip in salt to rim the glasses.
  • Add watermelon juice, tequila, lime juice, and Trader Joe's Jalapeño Limeade to two glasses, then stir to combine. Fill glasses to the top with ice.

Notes

If you do not have TJ's Organic Jalapeño Limeade, increase fresh lime juice to 3 ounces per 2 cocktails, and use 2 ounces Jalapeño simple syrup per 2 cocktails.

Jalapeño Simple Syrup

Add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a small saucepan. Slice 1 jalapeño and add it to the pan. If you want less heat in your margaritas, remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño before adding to the pan.
Simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Cool, strain the jalapeño syrup into a mason jar or container with a lid, then refrigerate.
This will make enough syrup for several margaritas, so you can easily keep it in your fridge for more cocktails another night.
