A Summer Cocktail

A SUMMER COCKTAIL

Great food and great cocktails are things people look forward to when coming to a party.  You want to make sure you have a variety of cocktails to appeal to your entire guest list. Fresh fruit is always a good way to add some flavor and decoration to ones cocktail. So, here are some great cocktails that you can serve at your summer parties with step-by-step instruction included. 

 

Watermelon Tequila

Watermelon is such an adsorbent and refreshing fruit to add to tequila giving it that refreshing taste. So I’m going to give you step-by-step instruction on how to do this creative idea, leaving your guest in awe.

What You Will Need: 

  • Watermelon
  • Tequila 

Instructions: 

1)You want to start off by cutting you watermelon in half. Now you can go two ways about cutting your watermelon up. In can either be in cubes or in ball form.

2)After cutting your watermelon, you'll be in an awesome place for them to soak up the tequila the best. If they are in ball form, it would probably be best to put them in a bowl. 

3)Now that your diced watermelon is prepped, proceed to pour your favorite tequila on the watermelon. You'll want them to be covered/almost drenched in booze. Doing this step a few hours (or a whole day) prior is essential, as that'll yield the best taste. 

4) Enjoy
