You guys, I’m not gonna lie. I’m terribly disappointed in myself for not getting up the National Margarita Day post that you all most certainly deserved. My Southwestern upbringing has established a deeply rooted love for all things Margarita – the good, the bad, and the slushie – and I let both myself and you readers down by not posting yesterday.
But, never fear! I have a brand new margarita recipe in store for you today, featuring Hiram Walker’s newest product, Watermelon Schnapps. This new 30 proof liqueur adds bold color yet delicate, natural flavors (not that pucker quality you may think of) to make a bright, refreshing margarita. There is also no denying the great balance of sweet and acidic properties in this margarita, which is enough to make me content and longing for summer to creep back into the picture. Here’s the recipe:
- 1 part Hiram Walker® Watermelon Schnapps
- 1 part Avion® Silver Tequila
- ¾ part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
- ¾ Fresh Lime Juice
Shake with ice. Pour into a coupe, margarita or rocks glass.
I hope you enjoy taking this recipe for a test run!
