Ingredients (Serves 12)
Sure you could take any tequila and margarita-flavoured mixers and make a punch, but we’re talking about taking the flavours to the next level, and that calls for a tequila less ordinary. Enter El Sueño Watermelon Liqueur. Its base spirit is El Sueño Silver, a premium 100% blue agave tequila with a reputation for making great margaritas, but it’s the natural summer fruit flavours of watermelon and citrus that make it a standout for the party season. To dial up the tequila flavour even more, we’ve used Espolon Tequila Reposado. Aged for 2 years in oak barrels, it’s a medal-winning Mexican craft tequila.
Bringing the fizz to any punch you make is a breeze with Grant Burge Pinot Noir Chardonnay. Bottle-fermented by the Champagne method, it’s an easy-drinking and great-value Aussie sparkling wine.
