Makes one drink
5 to 6 1-inch watermelon cubes6 mint leaves (see note)1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila (we used PARTIDA!)1 ounce St. Germain Elderflower liqueur1/2 ounce agave nectar1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juiceMint sprigs as a garnish
Place the watermelon cubes and 5 of the mint leaves in a mixing glass and muddle for 5 to 10 seconds. Add the tequila, St. Germain, agave nectar and lime juice. Fill with plenty of ice and shake for 10 seconds.
Strain over fresh ice into a highball glass. Garnish with a slapped piece of mint.
*Note: To "slap" the mint, place the sprig on one palm and slap with the other hand to give a burst of mint flavor and aroma.
