The Story Behind The Alta Sandía
In the Alta Sandía, fresh lime juice activates the sweet watermelon flavors that come from a bright watermelon puree, and a just-right pinch of salt ties the entire drink together.
Combining these flavors with PATRÓN Silver is an easy way to imbibe without any added sugars, chemicals, or artificial flavors because PATRÓN Silver has long been celebrated as the leading additive-free tequila. So while clunky Watermelon Margaritas of restaurants past may have entailed an unwanted sugar rush, the Alta Sandía presents an easy, summery way to imbibe with all-natural fruit juice and flavors. Read on to learn just how simple this recipe really is!
