Watermelon Margaritas

Another one from Cowgirl Cuisine. I would like one (or 6) of these right about now.

Watermelon Margaritas

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 🙂 )
