A Note From feedfeed

What could be better than ice-cold watermelon on a summer day? Ice-cold watermelon blended and spiked with tequila, of course! By making a fresh watermelon juice sweetened ever so slightly with agave and balanced with a pinch of salt, you have the perfect mixer for silver tequila. But we don’t stop there! To add another layer of fruitiness and punch of acidity the cocktail is topped with Raspberry Lime Spindrift for some bubbles and flavor. It’s one of our favorite cocktails using one of our favorite Spindrift flavors!
