Ingredients

Directions

  5. For a sweeter shot, add a splash of agave nectar or simple syrup.
  6. If you don't have watermelon liqueur, you can substitute another fruit-flavored schnapps, such as peach or mango.
  7. No cocktail shaker? No problem! Combine the ingredients in a mason jar filled with ice, secure the lid tightly, and shake vigorously.
  8. For a party-friendly option, multiply the recipe and serve in a pitcher. Guests can rim their own shot glasses with lime wedges and Tajín seasoning.
