With the sun shining and National Tequila Day upon us, we combined the best of summer and clean, crisp blanco tequila to create some afternoon summer sippers. With all of the fresh fruit in the refrigerator, we played around and created two very refreshing drinks that were easy to make and even easier to drink!
For our first cocktail, we muddled watermelon, mint and jalapeno and then added the juice of half of a lime, 2 oz of tequila and shook over ice and then strained into a glass. We opted not to add any additional sugar as the sweetness of the watermelon was just enough with the tartness of the lime and a hint of heat on the back. This drink was so light and refreshing that it was hard to believe it was alcoholic.
