  • 2.5 parts fresh watermelon juice *
  • 1 part silver tequila
  • 0.5 part reposado
  • 0.25 part cherry liqueur ( Heering or Luxardo )**
  • 0.33 to 0.5 part fresh lime juice
  • frozen dark cherries (Publix’ dark sweet from freezer case are good)
  • ice
  1. strain fresh juices & measure
  2. pour over 1 1/2 cup ice in a blender along with other wet ingredients
  3. hit mix and grab a handful of ice + three cherries from the freezer.  add & puree for 10 seconds


* = straining is important, preferably right after squeezing; otherwise the remaining solids imbue a vegetal quality.  to do it quick + dirty, fill a narrow neck plastic bottle with the juice and refrigerate for half an hour.  the solids will rise & collect near the top.  gently take the bottle to the sink & squeeze til juice runs clear.

** = use Heering for a tangier drink, Luxardo if you prefer things sweeter
