August 3rd is one of our favorite Alcoholidays, its National Watermelon day! So to celebrate, we’re sharing a few recipes featuring Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash and Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila . Watermelon is kind of synonymous with Summer, and with Summer almost over I can’t think of a better way to end it than sipping on one of these. Try one (or all) of these and let us know what you think!
