Margarita of the Month: June

Light & Easy Watermelon Margarita

Light & Easy Watermelon Margarita

Faced with an excess of watermelon (which is not a bad thing) around the kitchen after the Memorial Day weekend, I sought an alcoholic way to use up the plethora of moist melon, and came up with a pretty simple, light and refreshing version of a watermelon margarita… so let’s dive right in, shall we?

Light & Easy Watermelon Margarita

4 cups cubed seedless Watermelon (or thereabouts)

3 ounces Silver Tequila

1 ounce Grand Marnier (or Cointreau or other orange liquor)

1 ounce light Agave Nectar (or Simple Syrup)

1 1/2 ounces fresh Lime Juice

Sugar and lime wedge for rimming the glass if desired

Now here comes the hard part: put everything (except the sugar and lime wedge) into a blender and process until nice and smooth…

It shoudl look somthing like this... assuming you also have a blender that's about 100 years old...

sugar the rim of you glass if desired, add a few ice cubes and pour the melony goodness over!

Drink me!

Drink me!

With little added extra sugar/sweetener, be sure to make this with nice and ripe watermelon – this is perfect for a day by the lake/pool/beach or just a hot day in the backyard while grilling – heck, it’s pretty good just while inside too…

Give it a try – let us know what you think! Back to the kitchen.. and the bar!
