Summer Sangria on National Watermelon Day? Yes Please!

By Jennifer McKee


August 3 is National Watermelon Day. Why not celebrate this sunny summer fruit with a light and refreshing glass of summer sangria courtesy of 1800 Silver Tequila?

1800 Silver tequila is made from blue agave handpicked from family-owned ranches in Jalisco, Mexico. The plants take eight years to ripe and can be only harvested once. After harvest, the tequila is double-distilled and matured in French and American oak barrels. The result is a smooth flavor so fine that it lends itself to sipping. But we can’t resist this sangria—it’s just like summer in a glass!

 1800 Silver Summer Sangria

1 oz. 1800 Silver
3 oz. rosé
.25 oz. fresh lime juice
.5 oz. simple syrup
3 cubes watermelon

 Muddle watermelon, shake and strain over ice cubes in a stemless wine glass. Top with rosé and stir gently to combine. Garnish with cucumber-wrapped inner glass and watermelon slice.
