Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with Casamigos | Cocktails

Casamigos | Christian ConfidentialI’ve been itching to try out a new cocktail especially after the amazing weather we’ve had over the last few days in the city. I love having my friends over and seeing that summer is right around the corner I’ve been looking for a new refreshing, yet simple-ish cocktail to try. In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, my friends over at Casamigos sent over a cool package to test out their rendition of a Tequila Watermelon Margarita. Not too sweet and super refreshing, it makes for the perfect summer cocktail. Below, I’ve included directions and ingredients to D-I-Y (do it yourself)!Casamigos | Christian ConfidentialIngredients/Measurements: 1/2 part simple syrup | 1 1/2 parts Casamigos Reposado Tequila | 3/4 parts fresh lime juice | 4 parts muddled watermelon | 6-7 mint leavesCasamigos | Christian ConfidentialDirections: Muddle mint leaves & watermelon into a shaker. – Add remaining ingredients to the shaker ( simple syrup, tequila, fresh lime juice).  Shake and fine strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass.
