Chef Norm’s “Beat The Heat” Cocktail


  • ½ cup of Coconut Water
  • 2 ½ cups of seedless watermelon, small cubes
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • 4 strips orange zest
  • 1 cup Tequila
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon of Sweetened Coconut Flakes
  • Crushed Ice, as needed
  • Pinch of salt for rimming the glasses (or sugar)

In a saucepan, add the coconut water, sugar & orange zest & bring mixture to a boil, while stirring frequently.  Allow to simmer for a few minutes, remove from heat & let the mixture completely cool down.

Puree the cubed watermelon in a blender.

Pour the pureed watermelon into a large pitcher, then add the sugar/coconut water mixture, tequila & lime juice.

Rim the glass with a tiny bit of salt, or some sugar.  Add the beverage to the glass, garnish with a lime wedge and sprinkle some coconut flakes to top off your beverage.  Enjoy!
