Thirsty Thursday--Watermelon Paloma

I had never had a paloma cocktail until the other weekend,
and boy was I hooked.

I really liked the simplicity of the fruit juice with the tequila.
Not as sugary sweet.
Just simple and delicious.

This one is no exception.
I used fresh watermelon juice, tequila, and a little bit of mint simple syrup.

Watermelon Paloma

2 ounces tequila
4 ounces watermelon juice
1 teaspoon mint simple syrup
2 ounces club soda
mint leaves for garnish
watermelon pieces for garnish

Combine the watermelon juice, tequila, and mint simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice.  Shake until well combined and pour into a glass filled with ice.  Top with the club soda.

Garnish with a few mint pieces and watermelon pieces.
