Coconut and Watermelon Margarita

by James Stevenson

Today my recipe is a reflection of the current rise in humidity and the first cocktail I think about drinking in extreme heat. This is a classic Margarita spiked with watermelon and coconut water. I love using coconut water in cocktails because it adds a hydration element that you can’t get from regular water. It also adds a hint of coconut flavor to the drink, which marries so well with the watermelon and tequila. Let’s go drink some Margaritas together!
