METHOD
 

  1. Rub the rim of two tumbler glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rims in salt.

 

For the watermelon T & T’s: 

  1. Add a fresh mint leaf to each ice tray hole and divide the muddled watermelon over the mint. *Chef’s Tip: To muddle the fruit, place in a jar and mash with a wooden spoon.

 

For the tropical T & T’s: 

  1. Add a fresh mint leaf to each ice tray hole and divide the muddled pineapple over the mint.

 

For the cucumber cooler T & T’s:

  1. Add a quartered cucumber piece into each ice tray hole and divide the lime juice over the cucumber slices. *Chef’s Tip: Rolling the lime before squeezing will produce maximum juice!

 

For the grapefruit T & T’s:

  1. Add 1 quartered lime slice into each ice tray hole and divide the grapefruit juice over the lime slices.

 

To assemble: 

  1. Allow the ice cubes to chill in the freezer for at least 3-4 hours, or until set.
     

  2. Divide the ice cubes of your chosen drink between the two prepared tumbler glasses. Add a shot (30ml) of PATRON Silver Tequila to each of the watermelon or grapefruit T & T’s. Add a shot of PATRON Reposado Tequila to each of the tropical or cucumber cooler T & T’s. To finish, pour ½ a cup of tonic water into each glass.
     

  3. Garnish each drink with its respective garnish. Serve with a snack platter and ENJOY!
