A Kicked Up Frozen Watermelon Margarita
If you've noticed a lack of tequila drinks on our blog it's because neither Brian nor I drink much of it. Oh, we like the taste just fine but it does tend to hit us much harder than other liquors. With Cinco De Mayo coming up, though, we figured the holiday was worth a true margarita. Of course, when I say "true" I mean it's gotten the Hungry Couple cocktail twist.
1 Cup seedless watermelon cut into chunks and with the rind removed
1 1/2 oz. Tequila
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Midori
1 oz. Lime juice
1 oz. Simple syrup
1 oz. Triple sec
Prepare your glass by rubbing the rim with a piece of cut lime. Then dip the rim of the glass in a shallow plate of sea salt to coat the edge. Place glass in freezer to chill.
Combine all the ingredients in a blender filled with ice and blend until the ice has broken down. Pour into the chilled margarita glass and place in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up, if desired. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
