Spicy Watermelon Spritz

June 29, 2016

In this peak summer spritz, juicy watermelon gets muddled with fresh lime juice, then topped up with tequila and effervescent Boylan Heritage Club. Finish it off with a spicy chile-salt rim for just the right amount of zing. Whether you're heading to a backyard barbecue, a sandy beach or a rooftop fireworks viewing, you’ll want to have this drink in hand.
