What's not to love about summer? Warm temps, great tans and endless backyard gatherings. We love adding a fun signature drink to any event but fruity summer cocktails are our top choice! Here are a few of our fav's.
-Amy's Top PickThis is one of my favorite summer time cocktails. Watermelon has long been a favorite food so blended into a cocktail makes perfect sense! Light and refreshing this little ditty will keep you hydrated while relaxing on the patio.
1/2 Watermelon1 cup crushed ice1 cup tequila blanco1/2 cup triple sec or Patron Orange Liqueur1/4 cup lime juice1/4 cup sugar (or less, your preference)Lime slices or strawberries (for garnish)
-Blend Watermelon, ice and liquids in blender, pour in margarita glass, garnish & enjoy!
Tips: refrigerate watermelon prior to blending or all liquids prior to serving. Blended ice will not keep your drink cool very long.
