The mercury rose very high this week in Dallas. One day the temperature felt like it was over 114 degrees. We love summer, but even that is a little too hot for us. However, it did pose the perfect opportunity for us to share with you a new cocktail — Some Like It Hot!
We came up with the idea for this beverage when we were out to dinner one night and started up a conversation with the bartender. He was telling us about his drink ideation projects, and we got on the subject of how trendy watermelon and jalapeno are right now. The conversation got us thinking … we had Seagram’s Watermelon Vodka at home and plenty of fresh jalapenos in our backyard garden. Thus a star was born!
To make this delicious watermelon and spice flavored drink we followed the same recipe from our Jalapeno Popper Margarita that we shared with you in the summer of 2017. We replaced the tequila with Seagram’s Watermelon Vodka to give the drink a refreshingly, summery, watermelon flavor.
