Margaritas and Mondays. Sounds like it could be a song. Maybe it is? I’ll look it up later because I need to share these margaritas with you. We had a rather exciting long weekend this weekend. With the arrival of our new pup and getting adjusted here, it’s been a bit overwhelming, so I thought the perfect way to wind down would be a margarita. Specifically a watermelon margarita. When we bought our blender, it came with some great recipes, one being watermelon juice. Since this trendy beverage has hit the scene it’s all I hear about, so I decided to jump in and make something yummy with it. It’s supposed to have some serious health benefits, so really, what could be better than a healthy margarita? It’s simple, not a lot of ingredients. So basic, yet so tasty. I love how the lime dulls the sweetness, yet the sweetness balances out the tequila. It’s a great combination of flavors. I opted for a sugared rim, though I think a salted rim would be quite good here. The drink itself is very refreshing. It’s so good I have another idea planned for this for the summer months!
- In your blender, combine watermelon, ice, agave, and lime juice. Blend until smooth and juice like consistency.
- Line two glasses with sugar (or salt) mixture. To do this, rub a slice of lime around the rim and then roll the top into the sugar mixture until covered. Add ice to each glass. Pour about 1 ounce, of more if you prefer a stronger margarita, into each glass. Divide the watermelon juice between each glass. Garnish with additional lime slices if you like.
