Watermelon & Jalapeno Shrub Paloma

Recipe by: Jerry James Stone | Written October 15, 2018

Watermelon lovers who also love their dranks, you are in the right spot! This cocktail is inspired by the famous Pamola, but I use a shrub instead of grapefruit to bring the tang. The hint of jalapeno and fresh lime keeps it fresh and tasty.



1 bottle Honeydew Jalapeño Shrub
2 ounces Tequila
1/2 teaspoon Lime Juice
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 cup Cilantro
1 cup Cubed Melon
Pinch of Sea Salt
Crushed Ice

Total Time:

Recipe Type:
  1. Add 1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro to a mixing glass. Add in a dash of the tequila, some sugar, and a pinch of salt,  

  2. Muddle the ingredients together.  

  3. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lime juice.  

  4. Add in the remaining tequila. Hell, take a shot why you are at it. You deserve it! #treatyoself  

  5. Add in some crushed ice and the Honeydew Jalapeño Shrub from Element Shrub.  

  6. Stir the ingredients together. Mixing to combine but do not over work the mixture. The shrub contains sparkling water and you do not want to kill the fizz.  

  7. Strain the mixture.  

  8. Fill a Collins glass about 2/3 of the way with crushed ice and cubed watermelon.  

  9. Pour in the strained cocktail.  

  10. Gently stir and top off with a fresh sprig of cilantro.  

  11. Serve!
