It’s what you’ll be after drinking this drink! It’s like fire and ice in a glass. But use the hot sauce with slight hand; it should enhance – not overpower. Shake in a few sprigs of cilantro for a little herbalicious’ness!
1/3 cup fresh ripe watermelon (large 1” cubes)
2 oz tequila
3/4 oz agave nectar
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
2 dashes Tabasco or hot sauce
Rim half the glass with Citrus Salt (see recipe from Season 2, Episode 8) and set aside.
Muddle watermelon in a mixing glass, being sure to press the melon well to release the juices.
Measure in tequila, agave and lime juice.
Shake in hot sauce – do not over do it!
Fill with ice. Cap and shake vigorously.
Strain into a martini glass with a partial Citrus Salt rim or serve unstrained over ice in a tall glass.
