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.

And check out this super cute salt rimmer too!

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.

 If you make this be sure to come over on Instagram and tag me, @ourtiny_nest saying “Cheers!”
