  1. Spiced Up Watermelon Margarita
  2. 1 Jalapeno
  3. 8 Cups of Watermelon Chunks
  4. 1/2 Cup Lime Juice
  5. 1/4 Cup Simple Syrup
  6. 3/4 Cup Black Box Tequila
  7. 1/3 Cup Triple Sec

Pour the 3/4 cup of Black Box Tequila into a lidded container. Slice the Jalapeno (be sure to wash hands after) and place 4 slices into the 3/4 cup of Black Box Tequila, and place aside for 1 - 4 hours.

Slice up the watermelon and place it into a blender. Puree it until it is all liquid and strain it into a pitcher. Add the lime juice, simple syrup and triple sec and set in the refrigerator to chill.

After the Tequila has been infused by the jalapeno slices, take the slices out and the seeds. Pour the tequila into the pitcher, stir and enjoy. You can add salt to the rim of the glass and jalapeno slices to your cocktail if you would like.
