Spicy Watermelon Margaritas

Spicy watermelon margarita

I had my first spicy margarita recently. If you know me, I don’t like spicy things. But ever since I’ve had that spicy marg, I was hooked and I’ve been wanting to create my own. Fresh watermelon, limes and jalapenos makes this drink soooo refreshing and the perfect contrast of heat and coolness. Scroll down below for my Spicy watermelon margarita recipe.

Rose elderflower spritz

Who doesn’t love a cool cocktail on these warmer sunny days or nights? And with Memorial Day Weekend this weekend, it’s the unofficial start of summer. My favorite lately has been this rose elderflower spritz. St Germain elderflower takes this glass of chilled rose to a whole nother level and will make you feel feminine and like you’re sitting in a fragrant flower garden. I’m sharing how to make it below.

And for more cocktail/mocktail inspiration, check out some of the other ladies I’m teaming up with and their creations all the way at the bottom of this post.
