It’s that time of year again! Summertime = watermelon everywhere! We’ve got a spicy yet quenching surprise for you to try or all you heat lovers out there AND as always at a great price!
2 cups White Tequila
1 Watermelon, seedless medium sized
1/2 cup Triple sec / orange liqueur
1/4 cup Simple syrup
3/4 cup Lime juice
1-2 Jalapeño peppers
Salt (for rims)
Create an even rim around margarita glasses with salt and fill with ice. Thinly slice the jalapeño into rings and place 1-2 pieces into each glass.
Cut the watermelon into medium sized cubes and set aside.
Add watermelon, tequila, triple sec, simple syrup & lime juice into a large blender. Blend until liquefied and smooth.
Pour margaritas into the glasses. Garnish with lime and jalapeño. Serve and enjoy! These can also be served as a frozen margarita by adding ice into the blender prior to liquefying.
** Please note you can always omit the jalapeño if heat isn’t your jam.
Make your own simple syrup
Pour equal parts sugar and water into a saucepan. Heat and whisk until dissolved. The edges of the saucepan should start to lightly bubble/ simmer, the liquid should be completely clear. Allow to cool.
FUN FACT: Watermelon is both a fruit AND a vegetable. Talk about an overachiever!. Like most fruits, watermelon is the product of a seed-producing plant and has a signature sweet taste. But, it can also be traced back to the squash, pumpkin, and cucumber family known as Cucurbitaceae. Boom!
