Not only are watermelons a beloved warm weather delight, but they are also packed with nutrients that improve cardiovascular health, provide antioxidants, vitamin C, and offer major anti-inflammatory & hydration benefits. An especially ripe melon offers an amazingly sweet base for a simple syrup-less drink.

Freshly juiced watermelon makes for an amazing non-alcoholic mocktail, or a very hydrating base for a tequila infused cocktail! This recipe combines some very unique combinations, so don’t be afraid to go heavy on the spicy stuff here or else you’ll miss out on a punch of flavor.


Ingredients // Makes 1 serving

  • 3/4 cup fresh watermelon juice

  • 1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice

  • 1 lime

  • 3 raw jalapeño slices, with seeds

  • 3-4 Mint Leaves, gently muddled

Combine watermelon, pineapple, jalapeño, muddled mint, and the juice of ½ the lime in a shaker. Let sit in the fridge or freezer for 10 min. Serve chilled in a glass rimmed with cayenne pepper and salt. Garnish with extra lime slices and fresh mint. You can pour the drink over ice, but beware that ice can make this mock-tail taste too watery when it melts.
