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:
- 1/2 large watermelon- remove rind
- 2 limes- juiced
- 12 ice cubes
- 4 parts tequila
- 4 parts simple syrup
- 4 parts triple sec
- 2 parts sprite
- Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend.
- Pour into a margarita- you can use the second half of the watermelon to cut small pieces to garnish the margarita glasses.
- 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?
But what I’m excited about is the Georgia Watermelon Association‘s second annual Georgia’s Best Summertime Drink recipe contest. From June 15th- August 15th you can enter any of your watermelon beverage recipes for a chance to win a slew of fun summer-themed prizes. Including a top-of-the-line blender! You best believe I’m entering this margarita mix! You can enter here.
