Cocktail of the Week: Watermelon Mint Cooler
Who doesn’t love watermelon on a hot summer day? This simple summer slushy is sure to brighten any party.
10 oz Lemon Flavored Vodka – I recommend Absolut Citron
6 cups of Chilled, Diced, Seedless Watermelon + 6 wedges for garnish
5 cups of Ice
¼ cup fresh Mint Leaves + more for garnish
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree. Pour into tall glasses, garnish with Watermelon wedges and Mint. Enjoy!
Paloma, Salty Chihuahua or Tequila and Grapefruit, whatever you call it this delicious and refreshing drink is a perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day or heat things up anytime!
10 oz Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
3 oz Premium Silver Tequila – I recommend Avion Silver
Coarse or Kosher Salt
A cocktail shaker
Cut the lime into wheels. With one of the ends of the lime, wipe the edge of the glass to moisten. Pour salt on a plate and rotate the edge of the glasses through the salt until the rim has been coated. Half fill the shaker with ice. Pour Tequila and Grapefruit over the ice. Cover and shake. Pour into two glasses. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with Lime. Enjoy!
Party Tip: Oilcloth is a great table covering for outdoor parties. Reusable and economical, oilcloth comes in dozens of patterns and is sold by the yard at most fabric stores.
