Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail – refreshing and amazing cocktail recipe with fresh watermelon, tequila, lime juice and mint, takes 15 mins.
It’s that time of year again…when big, huge, juicy, red (and seedless) watermelons are on sale at the supermarkets and food stores. Everywhere you turn, you see some fresh and plump watermelons beckon with a low price tag of $0.99 per lb, or $2.99 each!
I am a sucker for watermelon, I can never resist them. And I would always pick the biggest one (which is bigger than my head), lug it home, and then realize that the watermelon is too big for my fridge and I couldn’t fit it in. That was exactly what happened this past weekend.
With a bottle of tequila sitting on my kitchen counter top, plus some fresh mints in my backyard, I turned my watermelon into this amazing watermelon-tequila cocktail, thanks to the amazing recipe by Food & Wine. I opted out the blueberries from the recipe and added a bit of calamansi lime juice to the cocktail. It was amazing and in no time, Mr. Rasa Malaysia and I finished the whole jug of the cocktail, at 11 am in the morning!
With Memorial Day weekend just days away, this watermelon-tequila cocktail is the perfect drink for your party, and definitely all through summer. You can easily make it into a mocktail by opting out tequila in the recipe. It’s a perfect cocktail for any parties and a summer drink to quench your thirst and beat the heat.
This summer I plan to share many new cocktails and drinks recipes with you, some Asian-inspired, for example: ginger-lemongrass iced tea with boba (tapioca pearls), sake sangria, lychee martini and so much more. I am excited just thinking of these amazing libations. Please stay tuned and cheers!
