Big news. Espolon Tequila is a sponsor for the FELIZ pre-party, which- have you heard? Is Wednesday May 2nd from 7-10 at Better Half! Espolon always has a spot in our bar, so we're stoked that they'll be at the pre-party.
Drinking tequila is the trade-off we get for surviving the hot hot summer. It's still spring, sure, but summer is on the way and we want you prepared. Brent from Cold Ones Pops, a repeat FELIZ vendor, gave us his go-to recipe for the Greenbelt Watermelon Fromarg. It's all natural, with only the sugar in the watermelon juice and meant to be enjoyed in a Slurpee cup while you dip the day away down by the water. Here, we made it for an at home sunset-watcher.
Take it away, Brent!
Greenbelt Watermelon Fromarg (makes 4 proper size margs)
The perfect to go marg if you have a nice insulated Yeti cooler cup or a giant Slurpee cup. Watermelon takes the place of ice and as a bonus doesn't water down your marg. When prepping the watermelon use the sweet interior of the delicious Texas watermelon.
4 cups frozen watermelon cut into small cubes.
12 ounces Espolon silver tequila
8 ounces combier or cointreau
4 ounces lime
Twang salt (hot lime is my jam)
Mix first 4 ingredients together in a blender until frozen. Pour into a big ass cup for yourself (you deserve this), or 4 pint glasses. Garnish with Twang salt (hot lime or even the michelada one)
Thanks to Espolon for helping make FELIZ the best it can be. We'll see you at the pre-party!
WEDNESDAY MAY 2ND 7-10PM AT BETTER HALF, 406 WALSH
