Watermelon Margaritas

You should know: This is an interesting recipe. It can be made either in the blender, or shaken individually. Either way, it’s oh so tasty!

Here’s a tip: Plan ahead and freeze your watermelon chunks in advance, and use a little less ice.

Here’s what you need to make it (per blenderful): 1 1/4 cups of seedless (or seeds removed) cubed Watermelon, 6 ounces Tequila, 4 ounces Melon Liquor or Midori, 4 ounces sour mix, Ice

And how to do it: For the blender, well shoot, you need instructions? Ok. throw in the liquids, blend for 10 seconds, then throw in the watermelon and ice and mix up to a minute depending on the strength of your blender.

For the non-blender recipe, try this…I think it’s better than the blender version. Throw in your watermelon chunks into a small glass or large shot glass and squeeze so about 2/3 of the juice is released. Put the juice and the fruit into a cocktail shaker along with 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce melon liquor or Midori, 2 ounces sour mix and some ice. Shake a few times (don’t kill it) and strain into your margarita glass. When you’re done drinking the margarita, you’re left with some alcohol saturated watermelon!!!
It’s my understanding that some people (in Pennsylvania apparently) like salt on their watermelons….seems so natural to salt the rim of the glass too!
