My wife alerted me to this tip from Sean Timberlake's Twitter. Sean runs the Hedonia blog about "eating, drinking, and living the good life in America's most hedonistic city, San Francisco". He recently enjoyed a watermelon jalapeño caipirinha at Aziza in San Francisco.
I Googled for a recipe and I found this one at South Carolina's The State.
Watermelon Jalapeño Caipirinha
- 2 ounces Leblon cachaça
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- Dash of simple syrup
- 1/2 cup chopped watermelon
- 1 stem of cilantro
- 1/2 small jalapeno or other chili
Muddle the jalapeno, cilantro, watermelon and simple syrup. Shake hard with Leblon and remaining ingredients. Strain over ice into a highball glass. Garnish with a stem of cilantro and two watermelon balls.
