Pretty in pink with a lavender garnish, this is the perfect cocktail for an evening spent with the girls or while basking in the end-of-summer sun…it’s incredibly refreshing and well-balanced. Cheers to summer, slices of cold watermelon, and sipping on margaritas year-round!
Watermelon Lavender Margaritas
For 2 cocktails
1/4 cup watermelon juice (blend then strain)
2 organic limes, juiced (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 organic lemon, juiced
3 tablespoons Lavender Simple Syrup (recipe below)
4 ounces tequila
1 ounce triple sec
Handful of ice
Sprigs of lavender for garnish
Place watermelon juice, lime juice, lemon juice, simple syrup, tequila, triple sec, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour into 2 tumblers of your choice rimmed with rose salt. Garnish with a sprig of lavender.
Lavender Simple Syrup
3 tablespoons organic lavender
1 cup filtered water
1/2 cup organic sugar
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Allow to simmer until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes a thick syrup. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain into a ball jar. Store in the fridge and use within one week.
