Watermelon & Basil Margarita from @Sauza Tequila for National Watermelon Day!

Watermelon & Basil MargaritaNational Watermelon Day is approaching quickly! For those of you who don’t know – which I assume is a lot of you – it’s on August 3, so you’ve still got some time to head out to the store and pick up your supplies. We’re not sure how most people celebrate this holiday, but it seems like the perfect opportunity to sharpen up on your jack-o-lantern carving skills before Halloween! (If anyone sends us a picture of a carved watermelon, we’ll definitely pin it/tweet it/post it on here.)

But what are you going to drink while you struggle to carve a face in the new medium of watermelon rind? If this is something you’ve been worried sick about for the last two sentences or so, Sauza has you covered! They came up with this tasty-sounding Watermelon & Basil Margarita – and we’re pretty sure it is should be the official drink of watermelon carvers everywhere!

Here’s the recipe:

Watermelon & Basil Margarita

·         2 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila

·         1 part DeKuyper® Triple Sec

·         Juice of one whole lime

·         (4) 1” cubes of seedless watermelon

·         Fresh basil leaves (2 to muddle; the rest for garnish)
