Watermelon Margarita

Summer is by far my favorite season and I relish every waking moment of it. My husband has coined this summer: “The Summer of Julia.” We are huge Seinfeld fans, and I’ve been able to do things this summer I’ve been wanting to do for years. Dreams only become a reality when you make them happen, and we are following that truth wholeheartedly this year!

This delicious summer needs a drink to go with it:: and this one is pretty spectacular. It’s refreshing and simple, with nothing added to ruin the flavors as they were designed to be enjoyed. I have always been a fan of margaritas, but only when the ingredients are pure {meaning sans sour or anything overly sugary.}

This recipe highlights the peak of watermelon season and yields about 4 drinks. Enjoy it with your friends on the front porch or poolside on a sunny day! Cheers!

 Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of watermelon, puréed in a food processor 
  • The juice of 3 limes, plus a few wedges for garnish 
  • Tequila, choose your favorite – I like a Blanco.
  • Triple sec
  • Salt for the glass rim (optional)
 Method:

  1. Purée the watermelon until smooth in the food processor. Squeeze the limes into the watermelon juice.
  2. Fill a low ball glass with ice and measure out 1.5 oz of your favorite tequila. Add .5 oz of triple sec, then pour the watermelon & lime juice over the tequila and triple sec until the cup is full.
  3. Stir, garnish with lime and a watermelon wedge and enjoy!
