Mango Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

This mango watermelon lemonade is a tropical escape packed into a very refreshing beverage. Sure to be a hit at your next party.

Here in Florida, mango season means an overabundance of mangos and there are times during the year that it seems like everything I make uses mango.  Plus, I always seem to have more watermelon than we can possibly eat and I love watermelon water.  This is a great flavor pairing that’s a little tropical escape.

Try replacing still water with sparkling water for a bubbly treat.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.

Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
