Combine the honeydew and cold water in batches in a blender and blend until smooth, pouring the puree into a pitcher as each batch is blended.


To the last batch of pureeing mixture, add the serrano chile, lime juice, simple syrup and cilantro leaves, pulsing until leaves are tiny flecks.


Blend in the tequila. Pour into the pitcher and stir in ice cubes.


Garnish the pitcher with a few sprigs of cilantro and two or three red chile peppers.

Make a simple syrup by heating 4 to 6 tablespoons sugar with an equal amount of water until it dissolves.
