Watermelon Margaritas
Serves: 2 drinks
  • 1½ cups pureed watermelon
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1½ ounces triple sec
  • 6 ounces tequila
  • dash of simple syrup (optional)
  • ice, for shaking and for the glass
  • salt (I like to use fleur de sel, but kosher salt will do), for the rim
  1. I pureed my watermelon in my food processor, but a blender or even an immersion blender can do the trick. Add the pureed watermelon, lime juice, triple sec, tequila, and a dash of simple syrup, if you like, to your mixer. Drop in a few ice cubes and shake for 30 seconds. Wipe the rim of each glass with a wedge of watermelon, then dip the edges in your salt and fill with 2 ice cubes each. Strain the drinks into the glasses and garnish with small watermelon wedge or a slice of lime.
