Another National Tequila Day has come and gone but not unnoticed by Green Parrot Package Goods and Spirits.
Always on the lookout for something to celebrate and and always looking to beat the summer heat, we broke out a recipe we’ve tried before, adapted from a NYT article we spied last summer.
Keeping it simple, which is our mantra, we started with a handful of diced watermelon from the supermarket, a few limes, some decent silver tequila and some fresh herbs and chiles for garnish.
Mix three parts watermelon purée with one part silver tequila, we used Patron but Herradura, Sauza Hornitos or any other good silver tequila would do, and ½ part fresh lime juice; serve over ice with a pinch of salt, a couple of slices of jalapeño . You can swap the jalapeño slices for a few mint leaves or a sprig of basil and I added a splash of Fever Tree Club Soda to give it a little fizz and pink it up a bit. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #nationaltequiladay #watermelonpunch
