Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the watermelon juice, Mezcal, Cointreau, lime juice and two jalapeño slices. Shake well to combine.

For the salted rim, combine the sea salt and Tajín in a small shallow bowl or plate. Using one of the reserved lime rinds run it along the rim of two rocks glasses. Dip the rims into the salt mixture. Fill the glasses with ice.
