Spicy Watermelon Cocktail is pleasantly spicy, using summer’s fave fruit, watermelon, for balance and color. Sip back into summer!
Do not be intimated by the hot sauce in Spicy Watermelon Cocktail.
Hi loves! Well, it is still technically summer, so I am coming out swinging with this new cocktail. I love a good watermelon cooler because it is so easy: you could simply drink it with vod and a touch of lime. But since TJH apps always have a twist, I wanted to bring the heat. If you are a baby when it comes to hot stuff, know that the spicy flavor is blended into a muted flavor pallet by the watermelon lemonade. And I’m pretty sure you can handle it (if I can, you can, promise!).
Watermelon Cocktail brings variety to happy hour, but it was also purposefully created for the busy hostess (or host).
You can blend fresh watermelon and lemons to make the base of Spicy Watermelon Cocktail, but if you are running around like crazy, I have a solution: Honest Watermelon Lemonade. This lemonade is the perfect punch of sweet to offset the spice of this cocktail, with no blender required. And so fresh!
Here is how Spicy Watermelon Cocktail quickly comes together. It is the no-nonsense cocktail that only requires a martini shaker and a shot glass.
- Using a martini shaker, combine Honest Watermelon Lemonade, vodka and hot sauce. Shake away.
- Pour in glasses.
- Add jalapeno for garnish.
The Jolly Hostess twist this week is the perfect way to hang onto summer. Enjoy a refreshing watermelon based cocktail with a hint of spice – and thank the hubby-to-be for the great cocktail idea. E was a bartender in college, understands cocktail balance and I am oh so lucky to reap the benefits!
