Watermelon Day Can Be Celebrated in Cocktails Across San Antonio
National Watermelon Day falls on August 3rd this year. And that’s coming up soon! So I wanted to let you know of several places to enjoy this favorite fruit of summer in a cold beverage.

As August rolls around and temperatures rise, lounging by the pool, lake, river or beach becomes a necessity. Lone Star’s recently launched Agave Hard Seltzers are the perfect treat to take on the go. The 5% ABV seltzer is made with a high quality sucrose base and enhanced with blue agave nectar, which only adds to the subtle sweetness of the watermelon flavor throughout. The Agave Watermelon Seltzer can be found at select locations including Walmart, Albertsons, Quick Trip, Circle K and HEB in 12 oz slim cans. Seltzer enthusiasts can also find a retailer nearest to them using Lone Star’s seltzer finder tool.
Kick back in one of EVO’s luxury recliners with a refreshing Watermelon Margarita from the bar. Made with Patrón Barrel Select, Triple Sec, agave, fresh watermelon and lime juice, this margarita is the fruity and refreshing beverage perfect for escaping the Texas summer heat. Pair it with one of the delicious dishes from EVO’s scratch kitchen and a blockbuster movie or round of bowling.
