If you’re of drinking age… and you love watermelon and you love margaritas… make these!! They are easy and smooth and quite possibly my new favorite summer cocktail. Sorry twisted Arnold Palmer… maybe next year 😉
Mix equal parts sugar and water in a small pan and bring to a boil. I infused mine with strawberry. Which basically means I threw a few frozen strawberries in to give it a hint of strawberry flavor. If I would have had fresh I would have used that or even some raspberries… yum.
These were so crisp and refreshing! The paired with the chicken enchiladas perfectly!! These would be great poolside… or even if the sun decided to shine at all!!!!!! Yes, we’ve been in the house due to rain the past 2 days… just me and the kids… Amen to 2 of my favorite friends showing up for dinner tonight!!
Enough about me… try these!!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Handful of fresh or frozen fruit
2 heaping cups of watermelon chunks
1/4 fresh lime juice
3/4 cup tequila
lime wedges for garnish
Combine sugar, water, and fruit in a small saucepan over high heat. Once it begins to boil reduce the heat to a simmer for about 3 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat to cool and remove fruit chunks. Place watermelon chunks in blender and process until smooth. Place fine sieve over medium bowl and strain watermelon juice. Add simple syrup to bowl along with lime juice and tequila. Serve over ice. Makes 4 drinks.
