Sauza Blue Tequila appeals to all the ladies – am I right?

Man I could use a margarita right now! A little tequila, a little sun, and a beautiful lake! The picture above is from a camping trip I took this month, and tequila’s were my go-to drink of choice! There’s nothing that says summer like an ice cold margarita, am I right?

What do you get when you cross Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn and professional tennis player Roger Federer? A challenge at Chocolate Mountain, that’s what!

Sponsored: An Invitation to #ChocolateHeaven

Roger got in touch with Lindsey via Skype and drew a picture of them as stick figures atop a mountain. But it’s not just any mountain, it’s the chocolate mountain. And what girl doesn’t want to be on top of that kind of mountain?!

As any of us would be, Lindsey is curious about the challenge on top of the mountain — and so are we. They aren’t revealing that just yet, but it sure does sound fun!

Instead of telling her what the challenge was, he offered her some compensation in the form of some delicious Lindt chocolates. While in Switzerland, he joked that it melts too quickly in Miami, which happens to be where she is.

It all began when Lindsey challenged Roger after he tweeted asking fans what other athlete he should play with. Lindsey responded with, “@rogerfederer I’ll ski with u if u play tennis with me :)”.

Finally, the challenge between Roger Federer and Lindsay Vonn has been revealed: a tennis match on top of the Jungfraujoch on the Aletsch glacier, against the backdrop of the Bernese Alps. The two sport stars meet each other to celebrate the opening of Lindt’s newest – and highest, at 3,454m – shop. The Jungfraujoch is called ‘The Top of Europe’, so it sure is a spectacular place to shop for some authentic Swiss chocolates :)

Watch their challenge here!

For more information, you can check out Lindt’s Facebook, Twitter and their official website using these links. The Chocolate Heaven challenge begins on July 17th so watch this space for the second video. To learn more about Chocolate Heaven, check this out.

Follow Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn on Twitter and they could give us more details!
