Ingredients

  • 5 cups frozen seedless watermelon chunks
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • ¾ cups good quality white tequila I love the Tarantula Azul Citrus Tequila
  • ¼ cup triple sec
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar if needed
  • Garnish with lime zest and decorators sugar if desired

Instructions

  • Cut up a watermelon into cubes and freeze in Ziploc bags. Generally I freeze 5 cups in each bag so I have enough for one batch in each bag. A large seedless watermelon makes about 6 bags of frozen watermelon chunks, 5 cups each.
  • If you want to make lime sugar for the rim of the glasses, zest one large lime or two medium ones. Combine with about ½ bottle of sparkly decorating sugar. Gently smash together with your finger tips. Rub a wedge of lime around the rim of each glass and dip in the lime sugar. Set aside while you prepare the margaritas.
  • When melon is frozen, add all ingredients to a powerful blender in order. Puree until smooth.
  • Taste and add sugar if desired. Summer watermelon is usually sweet enough but winter melons often need a bit of sugar.
  • Serve right away. Leftovers can be frozen for a few days. They are still very good.

Notes

Camping Suggestion: You can make a batch or two and freeze them in Ziploc bags. Toss the frozen bags in a good cooler and serve on the 1st night of your trip partially thawed.
