This weekend is the perfect weekend to mix up a batch of “Hooray for Summer” margaritas. Get a pedi,(watermelon pink of course!) slip on sandals, find a comfy spot and make sure you have a bottle of Sauza Blue Silver Tequila on hand. Crafted in their own distillery in Jalisco, Mexico using agave plants which are then milled and steeped within 48 hours of being picked, Sauza’s Fresh Pressed Agave process yields a fresh and crisp agave flavor with notes of citrus, floral and a touch of herbs. This tequila sipper thinks it’s perfect for making the perfect margarita. Tequila aficionados will want to know that it’s 80 proof, and has a taste that experts call “warm with a balanced body and short finish”. Ole!
Now, invite some pals over to your margaritaville and mix up a batch of these yummies.
Here’s the recipe.
4 ounces Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
2 ounces JDK & Sons™ O3 Premium Orange Liqueur
24 ounces (3 cups) seedless watermelon, chilled and cut into pieces
4 ounces lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup ice
Freeze cubed watermelon in a plastic bag for a minimum of 2 hours. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in glasses rimmed with salt and garnish with a lime or watermelon wedge. Makes four drinks.
Headed to a spot where mixing your own drinks is a hassle? Or maybe you’re simply feeling lazy after a hard week of work? Don’t sweat it. Sauza has you covered with this premade margarita that’s as sparkling as your bubbly personality.. Simply twist open a bottle of a ready made Sauza Sparkling Margarita and pour it over ice in your favorite glass. This year’s newest flavor is Watermelon, made from Sauza Silver tequila, triple sec, natural watermelon flavor and some effervescent water.
Enjoy this sweet, tart, watermelon and lime flavored effervescent margarita anywhere (well anywhere alcohol is legal, of course). Ahhh….I can hear those fizzy bubbles calling you now. Approx. $13. for 25 oz (750 ml) See http://us.SauzaTequila.com/ for a store near you.
