The Pomelo Julep: A Fresh and Flavorful Tequila Cocktail Recipe

May 19, 2015

With the long Memorial Weekend upon us we’ve got our sights on unique twists on cocktails to inspire our taste buds and cool us down. We love this refreshing tequila-based pomelo julep recipe - it’s full of bright citrus juices and has a blast of fresh mint flavor. Watch out, you’ll want more than one!
