You mastered the margarita-themed party back in the day and you were the first of your friends to try an avocado margarita, so you're no stranger to delicious tequila-based drinks.

Spiked Snow Cones
Simple and fun, this grown up version of your favorite summer treat is the perfect way to step up your backyard BBQ!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
1.5 oz Grapefruit juice
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
Splash of grenadine
For the full bottle batch:
1 bottle 21Seeds Valencia Orange Tequila
37.5 oz Grapefruit juice
12.5 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Grenadine
Combine all ingredients and pour into a container that has a small pointed spout (like a ketchup dispenser). Fill snow cone up with ice using an ice cream scoop. Pack the ice to form rounded heap at top (use your palm if need be). Drizzle the cocktail around the sides of the shaved ice until cone is full, then drizzle a small amount on top for color.
Tip: Do not pour the drink directly on top of the ice, mound will collapse. Key is to drizzle around the sides then drizzle small amount on top for color.
Perfectly sweet and tart, and easy to make in 10 minutes, this frozen mango-rita is ideal for a backyard BBQ! Make it sweet and spicy with an optional Tajin rim.

2 cups frozen mangos
2 cups ice
½ oz fresh lime juice

This three-ingredient watermelon spritz is simple, refreshing, and perfect for Mother's Day brunch!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
2 oz fresh watermelon juice
2 oz club soda
