When I think of summer, the first food to come to mind is always watermelon.  Do you remember as a kid just digging into a huge hunk of watermelon, juice dripping down your chin?  To bring back those sweet memories, I’ve come up with a pretty fantabulous Watermelon Margarita recipe for you!  Obviously, this is for those 21 and older.  There’s even a spicy version for those of you who enjoy an extra kick.

Here is my Watermelon Margarita recipe:

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 large watermelon- remove rind
  2. 2 limes- juiced
  3. 12 ice cubes
  4. 4 parts tequila
  5. 4 parts simple syrup
  6. 4 parts triple sec
  7. 2 parts sprite
Instructions
  1. Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend.
  2. Pour into a margarita- you can use the second half of the watermelon to cut small pieces to garnish the margarita glasses.
Notes
  1. You can sub regular tequila for jalapeño infused tequila. To infuse tequila: take a 12 oz mason jar and pour 10 oz of GOOD tequila in. Add 1/2 of a jalapeño to the tequila INCLUDING the seeds. Let sit for 1 week. Sieve out seeds and jalapeño bits and pour back into mason jar. Ta-Da you have jalapeño infused tequila!

 What I enjoy most about this specific recipe is it’s sweet summer time flavor.  Not to mention, watermelon is made up mostly of- you guessed it- water, so it keeps you hydrated while you booze!  Genius, right?
