Watermelon Margarita


This was one of the cocktails I served over the weekend and it was a huge hit! I hate to buy watermelons because they are huge and it’s too much for the 2 of us so this was a nice solution to use up some of the watermelon we had leftover. Personally I think it might taste a little better with rum instead of tequila, but that’s just me I not a huge tequila person. One thing I really loved is I made 2 batches of this to fill a pitcher and stuck it in the fridge, which not having to blend the ice with it means that the cocktail won’t get watered down. The only thing I recommend doing is straining the mixture before serving it. As you can see from the pictures the unstained kind of separates in this frothy-ness stuff and isn’t texture pleasing in your mouth. I also blended it with the seeds so staining it also took them out. I loved the color of the drink! It’s defiantly going on my pool side cocktail menu for this summer!
