With summer coming in hot, it’s the perfect time to try out a new cocktail for your backyard hang outs or your refreshing pool days!

I love a good cocktail and plan on trying out some new recipes this summer, but I wanted to share my current favorite concoction! Feel free to modify to your own personal liking, and remember to enjoy responsibly:

Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail:


-In a small saucepan, bring 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup granulated sugar to a light simmer over medium heat until the sugar is fully dissolved (about a minute), then let the mixture cool.

-Blend about 8 cups of fresh watermelon chunks until smooth, straining the liquid and scrapping the excess pulp.

-In a pitcher, combine the sugar mixture with 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, 2 cups fresh blueberries, and fresh mint leaves to your liking and muddle.

-Add in the fresh watermelon juice and 1 1/2 cups tequila (it’s also great with vodka or rum, too!)

-Refrigerate for 90 minutes to 2 hours and serve in glasses over ice with an additional watermelon chunk and mint leaves for extra garnish.


The Georgia heat is no match for a cocktail this refreshing!
