Watermelon MargaritasPosted: June 4, 2008
Another one from Cowgirl Cuisine. I would like one (or 6) of these right about now.
4 lb. piece of ripe seedless watermelon
2 1/2 cups good-quality Silver tequila
3/4 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur
1 cup fresh lime juice
Lots of crushed ice
Mexican Key limes or additional watermelon, for garnish (optional)
Trim the rind from the melon and slice the fruit into 2-inch cubes. You should have about 8 cups. Place the watermelon in a blender and puree until smooth. Combine the watermelon juice, tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice in a pitcher or jug and add plenty of ice. Garnish with thinly sliced rounds of Mexican Key limes or additional melon cubes or wedges.
Serves 8 (can be doubled/tripled/quadrupled 🙂 )
