Yes it is that time of year, when all the neat fruit drinks are being served everywhere. Here is one with a little twist from the way that Bobby Flay has it listed. One of the seasons best is Watermelon summer adult Tequila style.
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/2 cups silver tequila
What to do with all of this.
Make an simple syrup with the granulated sugar, and let it cool
Using a blender, puree the watermelon and set it in a fine mesh strainer and let it strain out. You can gently press the watermelon that is in the strainer to get the rest of the juice out.
Pour the simple syrup in a large pitcher add the berries and mint leaves. A wooden spoon is the desired mixing and muddling tool. Then add the watermelon and Tequila. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
Serve in a tall ice filled glass with a sprig of mint when serving this fine drink. You can put a thin slice of Watermelon on the edge of the glass too
