It's hotter than hell in Hell's Kitchen, so we're keeping it cool with a watermelon/jalapeno cocktail.
4 cups semi-frozen seedless watermelon cut into 2-3 inch chunks
1/4 cup mint leaves
juice of 1/2 a lime
1-2 teaspoons minced, fresh jalapeno (NO SEEDS!)
1/4 cup (or more) vodka
4 ice cubes
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish glasses with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
Makes 4 drinks.
