Today’s featured cocktail is inspired by the favorite fruit of summer, the watermelon. The refreshing and sweet taste of watermelon is the perfect addition to any summertime cocktail, including the summer favorite Margarita. A classic Margarita on the rocks is always a perfect choice, but once August rolls around you may be looking to switch it up, which is where I come in with the Watermelon Margarita:
- 1 part Avion® Silver Tequila
- 1 part Hiram Walker® Watermelon Schnapps
- 3/4 part Hiram Walker® Triple-Sec
- Fresh lime juice
Shake with ice. Strain into glass.
If you REALLY want to shake up your Margaritas and you’re a big fan of bacon (and it seems like most people are these days) you can also give the Maplerita a try!
- 2 parts Reposado Tequila
- 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon
- 1 part fresh lime juice
- .5 part simple syrup
Add all ingredients to shaker with ice. Strain over ice in highball glass and serve
Happy Friday & Enjoy
