Summery Melon Margarita Milkshake
In celebration of National Tequila Day, we crafted this most refreshing spiked milkshake inspired by (and made with) our own Melon Margarita ice cream! It's a unique margarita milkshake mashup that's best enjoyed poolside on a hot Texas summer day... or, to be frank, it'd make an equally good nightcap to sip on in the comfort of your AC while lounging on your coziest couch. For best results, we recommend making this boozy milkshake with our favorite organic tequila, Dulce Vida Blanco Tequila, and some fresh, ripe cantaloupe straight from the farmer's market!
