Red White and Blueberry Cocktail

July 1, 2014

Try this sweet and stout cocktail this 4th of July! With watermelon, tequila and blueberries, it's sure to be as mouthwatering as it sounds! Yumm! This recipe serves 4 (or one if you're using a gigantic mason jar), so invite your favorite folks over and try it out together!

Ingredients:

5 oz Silver Tequila

1 small watermelon

juice of 2 limes

1 cup blueberries or more

8 oz club soda

Directions:

Cut the watermelon off the rind and into medium sized pieces. Use a juicer to extract the juice or just mash them up in a large bowl and strain the mush. Pour watermelon juice in pitcher half filled with ice. Squeeze in the juice of 2 limes (or about 3 Tbsp. of juice from concentrate). Add fresh blueberries. Note: these won't add much flavor, but they sure make it pretty. As a bonus, eat them last to get some antioxidants! Pour in tequila and club soda. Add sugar to taste. If you prefer a tart cocktail, no sugar is necessary. Sip and enjoy!
