Last week for True Blood Sunday, Ben and I decided to use 1/2 of a left over watermelon from our garden and 1/2 of a watermelon our friend gave us to make watermelon cocktails.  My mother in law emailed me a couple of recipes that she cut out of magazines (probably Southern Living).  Ben looked over the recipes and decided to put his own twist on them.  I am so glad that he did because his watermelon margaritas are my new favorite cocktail.

Ben’s Watermelon Margaritas Recipe

Ingredients for 1 batch (serves about 5-6):

  • watermelon (about 1/2 of a large watermelon)
  • 2 cups Tequila
  • 3/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/2 cup of Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of lime juice
  • a few ice cubes

1.   Seed your watermelon and cut  into 1 inch cubes.

2.  Next,  put them on trays and put them in the freezer for a few hours.

3.  Once your watermelon cubes are frozen, add the tequila, Triple Sec, sugar, and lime juice in a blender and fill the rest of the blender with the watermelon cubes.

4.  Add a couple of ice cubes, blend and you are ready to serve your margaritas.

I suggest you make more than one batch, because these are so good that they go fast.

If you use this recipe, let me know what you think!
