Watermelon Jalapeno Martini

Happy Friday everyone! Are y’all as ready for the weekend as I am?

This started off as an idea for popsicles.

Then I got distracted by vodka. Tito’s vodka specifically.

Because that’s how normal people think. They start thinking about popsicles and then they want vodka… if you give a mouse a cookie…

So I did make some mini popsicles… and I then I made a martini. A watermelon jalapeño martini to start the weekend off right!


You’ll need:
Seedless Watermelon
1/2 Jalapeno
1 lime
Pinch of kosher salt
Tito’s Vodka

 First start by quartering the watermelon.


Use a spoon to scoop the watermelon into a blender. I used about a quarter of a watermelon to make about 4 servings.


Off to a good start!


Dice up a jalapeño. Jalapenos are hot this season, so beware! The coolness of the watermelon is great with a touch of heat. I used only half a jalapeño (with the seeds) and it was pretty hot!


Squeeze in the juice of half a lime.


Add in a pinch of kosher salt.


Love this color combo… so pretty. Now we are ready to liquify!


Awww yeah.


Pour the (nonalcoholic) pureed watermelon and jalapeño into ice cube trays. I did this in the sink, it can get sticky!


Then I added toothpicks to make mini watermelon jalapeño popsicles!


I made some bigger popsicles too… not sure what I am going to do with these yet but I know it will be good!


And into the freeze they go!


And then I thought hmmm what to do with the remaining watermelon and jalapeño purée?

Obvious answer. Add Tito’s vodka. Duh.


Into the martini glass you go mmm’dear.


Add a shot (or two) of ice cold Tito’s vodka.


Garnish with a lime wedge and jalapeño slice.


Sip and enjoy.


Have a great weekend everyone!
