In a Shot: Sister in Law's 40th Birthday party called for on the spot cocktail creation and created a farmer's market inspired watermelon fresca and also made a non-alcoholic variation using house made peach nectar.
By defenition, an Agua Frescra is a famous refreshing spanish sweetend juice drink combining fresh juice, water & sugar. The literal translation means "cool water" and is typically a non-alcoholic beverage. I have one at my house right now that is freshly blended peach nectar, water, simple syrup and lemon juice.
It's a key ingredient in my current cocktail of the month, the Thai spiced tea inspired "Peaches N' Tea". Though it goes very well with tea, while peaches are still in season, I highly recommend jumping into this amazing drink using other mixers as well. Top with soda water, champagne or add an ounce (or two!) of your favorite clear spirit to either start or finish your day!
I was given the task to create a cocktail in a hurry for my sister in laws big 40th birthday bash. It was important that the cocktail be delicious and the girl is a fan of Margaritas so of course I went with a spin off on those. My final concoction became the Watermelon Fresca. A refreshing blend of lime and lemon juice, silver tequila, freshly juiced watermelons, sweetend by Elderflower Liqueur and seasoned with a pulvarised lavender salt. Fresh, bright and very perfumey, this drink ended up being a huge hit with the masses!
1 1/2 oz Silver Tequila
1/2 oz St. Germaine Elderflower Liqueur
Juice from one quarter of a lime
6 oz Watermelon Juice (Use a high powered juicer. You can also use a professional blender and strain the mix through a cheese cloth or muddel fresh watermelon chunks into your cocktail shaker to make the drink)
