Watermelon Tequila Snowcone

We’ve officially entered the part of summer where I want everything frozen – namely frozen cocktails.  This cocktail is inspired by the snowcone variations I’ve been seeing at some of my favorite bars, including Katana Kitten and Dante NYC – and by a classic highball recipe from Rosie Schaap.  Fresh watermelon pairs gorgeously with the main boozy ingredient in this cocktail -  Exotico Tequila Blanco – and the squeeze of fresh lime cuts the sweetness of the syrup perfectly.  Could there be a more perfect summery treat?  I think not.

This cocktail is super simple and makes a delightful boozy snowcone that is delightful on a hot day.  You’ll need to prep the watermelon syrup ahead of time in order to let it cool, and this batch will prepare plenty of syrup for a summer of watermelon tequila snowcones!  Enjoy!

Watermelon Tequila Sno-cone

1-1/2 oz Exotico Tequila Blanco
1 oz Watermelon Syrup
1 Lime Wedge
Lime Zest to Garnish

Build over shaved ice, and garnish with a squeeze of fresh lime, lime zest, and a small spoon.

Watermelon Syrup

4 Cups Fresh Watermelon
1 Cup Sugar

Cut watermelon into cubes, and puree in a food processor or a blender.  Strain into a medium sized pot and add sugar.  Simmer on medium heat until the syrup has reduced slightly.  Let cool and transfer into glass jars.  Will keep in the refrigerator for up to one month.
