Cinco de Mayo has always been a major part of mylife. Perhaps it’s the growing up in SoCal, and the deep immersion of Mexican culture. Although it’s almost Cinco de Mayo, Tequila can really be used in a myriad of ways. While it’s great in margaritas, there are so many other uses. Check out these 4 great uses for Tequila!
Tequila Tip #1: It’s all in the presentation – Wow your friends with a fabulous celebration by creating a fun watermelon punch bowl to hold your delicious margarita. To begin, start with a seedless watermelon. Using a sharp knife, carefully trim the bottom to make it a flat surface. Next, cut off the top (about ¼ of the watermelon) and with a melon baller hollow out the flesh. Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to scrape the inside walls of the watermelon clean. Fill with your favorite margarita recipe and enjoy!
