Watermelon Jalapeno Skinny Margarita Recipe!

Easy to make from scratch using all natural ingredients

How to make your own jalapeno infused watermelon margaritas from scratch. If alcohol could be healthy, this recipe would be it. With no added sugar and packed with Vitamin C from the fresh juices, this drink takes away the guilt of drinking.

This recipe is inspired by a friend who shares my passion for creativity and making the most of all natural ingredients. Mixology to me, is more than just making great tasting drinks that subdue the harshness of the alcohol. To me, it’s an art, experimenting with delicate floral notes, or using a complementary  alcohol to enhance the flavor profile of a fruit. There’s nothing I appreciate more than a well made drink that isn’t full of additives, preservatives, coloring, and high-fructose corn syrup. With that said, I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do… and drink with caution, they will sneak up on you.
