When it’s nothing but hot, hot, hot, these simple, refreshing summer drinks – with our without alcohol – are a great way to cool down!
Summer Watermelon Margarita
4 cups cubed seeded watermelon – freeze for frozen drinks!
Juice of two lemons, or 4 limes
3/4 cup good tequila
Shot of triple sec
Optional garnish ideas – pick one, or get creative: Lime wedges, watermelon wedges (rind on), mint, cayenne pepper, sugar on rim of glass.
Frozen Melon Directions: Add first two ingredients to the blender, with 1/4 cup of water and “adult” ingredients, if using. Blend, tamping down as needed, until smooth (do not over-blend, you want this thick and frosty). Serve immediately.
Non-Frozen Melon Directions: Add first two ingredients, plus “adult” ingredients, if using, to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour over ice to serve.
