Summer Recipe: Watermelon Cadillac Margarita
Our cold pressed juice, Summer Cooler, is back!!! It’s a hit year after year and we always look forward to watermelon season specifically to be able to create this juice! It’s the most refreshing blend of sweet watermelon, hydrating cucumber, tart lime, and a dash of sea salt. Especially loved by golfers and boaters!
For a party-ish twist, we had our COO and Sommelier, Alex Berentzen, create a signature cocktail. While we can’t serve this in our restaurants (our liquor license is for wine and beer only) we can definitely supply the watermelon drink that makes this cocktail so special. Sold as as a growler or single serve.
This refreshing cocktail is perfect for summer as 4 Oz of delicious juice is added to a classic margarita – it’s not too strong, not too sweet or sour. It’s perfect pool side or in the backyard on Father’s Day!
Prep time: 5 minutes
- 4 Oz Watermelon Cooler from Organic Krush
- 2 Oz Reposado Tequila (Don Julio, Patron)
- 1/2 Oz Grand Marnier
- 3/4 Oz Honey Syrup
- 3/4 Oz Lime Juice
(Honey Syrup – heat up 1/4 cup of water with 1/4 cup water so it mixes easily).
– Mix ingredients vigorously in shaker. Then add ice to shaker, shake again. Rim the glass with Himalayan Salt. Poor mixture into glass and garnish with lime wheel. Voila!
Let us know what you think! This isn’t the first time we’ve mixed cold pressed juice into a balanced cocktail, but this one certainly stands out as a summer keeper.
