Ok, so it’s summer…and I’m preggo. That means no Blue Moons and no frozen margaritas. {sad face} …but that doesn’t mean I can’t liven up my beverages, I just need to make them without alcohol. Honestly, after trying this mamarita, I didn’t really miss the tequila (and tequila is my FAVORITE!). I did add extra lime to give it a kick and served it in a margarita glass (so it felt real). Even if you’re not preggo it’s a great way to use up a leftover watermelon from those summer picnics.

Meg’s Frozen Watermelon Mamarita
serves about 4-5 depending on serving size

1/2 to 2/3 of a watermelon quarter – cubed and frozen!! (if you’re not using a frozen watermelon you’ll need to add ice)
1 12 oz can of lime aid concentrate (frozen)
8 oz cranberry juice
4 oz orange juice

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend. You may need to add the watermelon cubes in stages. This will make a full blender carafe so cut recipe in half is you only want 2 servings or if you have a small blender. The amount of watermelon is just a personal choice and helps with the consistency by eliminating the need to ice cubes which will water down the finished beverage.

FOR A SINGLE SERVING: Add 1/4 of a cubed, frozen watermelon quarter; 5 oz cranberry juice, 2 oz orange juice, juice of 1/2 fresh squeezed lime. Blend and enjoy!
