This summer, it’s all about life’s margarita moments. There’s nothing like chilling with some great friends and whipping up a pitcher of margaritas to share. One fun thing I’m loving lately is DIY projects so when Sauza’s beloved cowboy challenged us to “Jort It Up” and get a bit crafty, well then – it was time to break out the sparkle, pour the tequila and have a blast.
Here – see for yourself – he’s getting a bit crafty:
One of the other things I love to DIY is homemade beauty scrubs and potions – you can check out my Summer State of Mind board on Pinterest where I’ve pinned some of my fave DIY ideas, some fantastic recipes and, of course, cocktails. A bit of a DIY party and some Sauza margaritas makes for an amazing Girls’ Night In.
I decided to make a Watermelon Otai Margarita for a bit of summer freshness and it was a hit! Now – granted, tequila is not normally part of the ‘Otai recipe so if you want to make it straight without the spirit – feel free. Instead of blending ice into the cocktail, I decided to freeze some of the watermelon instead – the last thing you want is a watery cocktail, right? Also – it packs a bit of a wallop so drink responsibly. If it gets too thick, feel free to add a bit of coconut water to thin it out a bit. This Watermelon ‘Otai Margarita is beyond refreshing and full of summer flavors!
OK – enough already – let me shush…
On to the recipe:

Ever think you could make jorts with a cowboy? Here’s your chance to meet a man who crafts his heart out. Okay, so maybe he’s not the best DIY-er. But what he lacks in cutting skills, he more than makes up for when he makes the perfect Sauza-rita. Watch him in action for ideas for your next ladies’ night in: http://bit.ly/1juaLln.
