Refresh. Rekindle. Repeat.

You’d be hard pressed to find a drink this refreshing with a heat that’s equally satisfying. With Watermelon Jalapeño Liqueur and tequila, the only way to put out the flames is another sip.


1 ½ oz. Reposado tequila
1 ½ oz. Watermelon Jalapeño Liqueur
¾ oz. Fresh-squeezed lime juice.


  1. Combine tequila, Watermelon Jalapeño Liqueur and lime juice in a shaker full of ice.
  2. Shake vigorously and strain into a highball glass full of ice. (Salted rim optional)
  3. Garnish with lime wheel and/or jalapeño.
