Spicy Watermelon Margarita

This Spicy Watermelon Margarita is the perfect cocktail to celebrate with this summer – filled with fresh watermelon, spicy jalapeno, zesty lime and tequila!

This week is packed with reasons to celebrate… There’s Margarita Monday, Taco Tuesday, and of course, Cinco De Mayo on Wednesday! If you can participate in the celebrations, then invite some friends over, eat delicious food, and enjoy these special occasions (preferably with a margarita in hand)! And If you’re wanting to impress your friends, I have the perfect suggestion for which margarita you should make! 

The temperatures are warming up and the sun is staying up longer which gives us some more time to enjoy the end of the day, especially on Cinco De Mayo. This year, I’ll be making a delicious spread of tacos and sipping on the Spicy Watermelon Margarita!

The Spicy Watermelon Margarita is bursting with thirst-quenching flavors like watermelon, fresh lime juice, agave, jalapeño, and Exotico Blanco Tequila. It’s spicy, sweet, and refreshing… this margarita has all the flavors you want in a summertime cocktail. Plus I love using Exotico Blanco Tequila because it’s so smooth and has a great taste which makes it an easy liquor to mix with other ingredients.

This particular varietal is a blanco tequila with a 40% ABV and is 80 proof. It’s a premium, unaged 100% blue agave tequila produced and crafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. It’s a perfectly crisp blanco with spicy and herbal undertones and hints of fresh agave and pepper.

Exotico Tequila is built on family tradition that’s been creating a premium and delicious product for generations! Created in Jalisco from the agave fields to the finished product. Kick up your feet and enjoy the Spicy Watermelon Margarita responsibly with Exotico Blanco Tequila for a premium tequila cocktail!
