Watermelon Margaritas

My favorite thing to make with watermelons is this  beet salad. This is my second favorite thing to make with watermelons.

Watermelon Margaritas.

First, you have to turn the melon into juice, and you need some tequila and limes too.

I don’t have a juicer, so I went low-tech turning that watermelon into juice.

I cut it up.

Smooshed it with a potato masher.

Then I strained it to get the seeds out. I got about a quart of juice from my watermelon.

I chilled the juice for a couple hours, but you could use ice, or hey! You could freeze some of the melon juice into ice cubes so you don’t dilute the drink…oh man…I wish I thought of that before I took the pictures…oh well…moving on….Next, I added some tequila and lime.  I used about an ounce of tequila and 1/2 a lime for each margarita. But you can use more or less in yours!  It’s like a party in a glass. IMG_2977

    Mo, you posted a recipe for an onion/tomato relish a few weeks ago. I’m not seeing it in your blog. Can you tell me where it’s posted? Thanks.
