It’s Monday and we’re drinking Skinny Jalapeño Watermelon Margaritas! It’s pretty much the BEST.DAY.EVER.
Can every day of my life could look exactly like this one??
I’ve always said that margaritas are my absolute favorite cocktails. But, it has to be a REAL margarita — no sour mix for me. I usually stick to traditional lime + tequila margaritas, but if I have to choose another flavor, I often go with watermelon. Watermelon margaritas are SO refreshing and delicious!
So, Skinny Jalapeño Watermelon Margaritas — there’s jalapeño infused tequila … and lime … and triple sec … plus, a special ingredient to help tie in that refreshing watermelon flavor, Bai® Kula Watermelon, of course ! It doesn’t get much better than that, - especially in August when it’s 100+ degrees.
These are spicy, tart, and sweet. I LOVE IT. The spiciness comes from jalapeño slices. It’s just spicy enough. You get the sweetness from the Bai Kula Watermelon, a little tart from the lime, and then BOOM! Some heat.
And if spicy isn’t your thing, you can always just leave out the jalapeño part and just use regular tequila.
What really takes THESE margaritas over the top though is Bai® Kula Watermelon! It’s just sweet enough with bold flavor and no artificial sweeteners. There are only 5 calories and 1 gram of sugar per serving. Plus, Bai® drinks are infused with antioxidants!
