The St. Felix is a cool hangout in Hollywood, serving up custom cocktails and delicious bar fare. Their mix masters created this drink just for Mom.me, and we're sure you'll love it as much as we do. A Spanish twist on the Iggy Pop song title “Gimme
Danger,” this “Dame Peligro” reminds us of a margarita
with a sweet watermelon base but with a surprising kick of jalapeño. Dangerous, indeed.
RECIPE: Dame Peligro
Yields 1 cocktail
3 oz watermelon, freshly cut
½ oz simple syrup
½ oz fresh lime juice
Jalapeño slices (1 for mild, 2 for medium, 3 for hot)

around the rim and dipping it into a plate of salt or chili.
