Cocktail recipe for over 21 only. Please drink responsibly.
Because of the sweetness of the watermelon, this Margarita doesn’t need much sugar, so one glass has only approx. 105 calories. A little bit of fresh lime juice brightens the drink and adds a welcome tanginess. For a special touch, rim your glasses with sugar and garnish with lime wedges and watermelon blocks or balls.
2 teaspoons sugar, mashed rock candy or colored grainy decorating sugar (for rimming 6 glasses)
1 1 lime wedge (for glass prep prior to rimming)
3 1/2 cups cubed seeded watermelon
1/2 cup tequila
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (or prepare from concentrate)
1 tablespoon Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur)
Lime wedges or watermelon balls (optional)
whole watermelon chunks or mashed (optional)
1. Place 2 teaspoons sugar in a saucer. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with 1 lime wedge; spin rim of each glass in sugar to coat. Set prepared glasses aside.
2. Combine watermelon and next 4 ingredients (through Triple Sec) in a blender; process until smooth. Fill each prepared glass with 1/2 cup crushed ice. Add 1/2 cup margarita mixture to each glass. Garnish with lime wedges, melon balls and/or blocks, and add mashed chunks of melon if desired.
