Drink Type: Cocktail
- 1 1/2 oz. Partida Reposado Tequila
- 3/4 oz. Lime Juice
- 3/4 oz. Simple Syrup Actually Honey syrup. 2 parts honey, 1 part water and boil. Cool before using.
- 3 piece(s) Watermelon the size of an ice cube
Lightly muddle the watermelon and then add the Reposado Tequila, lime juice and honey syrup. Shake all the ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
The combination of citrus juice and honey syrup also creates what is called a honeysuckle cocktail which can be made with several different spirits. I've recently had tequila on my mind so I made a tequila honeysuckle and bumped it up a notch by adding a couple of chunks of watermelon. I found that the watermelon added another layer of flavor and paired well with the honey syrup and the richness of the Reposado Tequila. This cocktail was really amazing and I encourage anyone who is trying to build up their drink repertoire to add this one to their list! Enjoy – Navarro Carr, Trios, Atlanta
