I can’t even begin to describe how delicious and refreshing this was {licking my lips}! Mom had sent a huge watermelon because my Lily Belle loves watermelon…but when she left, I was left with half a melon…so what’s a girl to do but make…

Watermelon Margaritas

Delightful frozen watermelon margaritas.

2 oz Tequila (I used silver)
2 oz Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur)
4 oz cranberry juice
1 fresh lime (about 3 Tb)
blender full of frozen cubes of watermelon

The ratios are to taste and strength, but I found this essentially 1:1 alcohol/non-alcohol mix to be just right. Make sure you throw your watermelon in well in advance so it’s nice and frozen, otherwise you’ll need to add ice cubes which I find just waters down the beverage (lots of recipes actually call for ice cubes, but you really don’t need them if you watermelon is nice and frozen). If the blend is too thick, just add splashes of cranberry juice until the mixture loosens up.

I stored the leftovers in the freezer and just thawed a bit before serving the next day…just as delicious!

(See Laura…I told you that there’d be cocktail recipes on this blog!)
