Watermelon Margarita Summer’s Best Alcohol Fueled Beverage

Watermelon Margarita is seriously awesome! And since, Grandma Juice is not a particularly picky person (say that 5 times, real fast) you can just trust that I know this as 100% fact. However, there’s a few things I simply can’t be convinced to falter on.

  • Van Halen never should have replaced David Lee Roth with Sammy Haggar
  •  Guys who wear cowboy hats and wrangler jeans beat dudes who wear ‘do rags and baggy ass britches
  • No pirate will ever be as hot as Johnny Depp
  • Decaffeinated coffee is an oxymoron
  • Vampires are infinitely superior to zombies (vampire Eric, enough said)
  • Patron Silver Tequila beats Cabo Wabo Tequila hands down (again, bad move Sammy Hagger)

Also, margaritas (watermelon margarita or otherwise) shaken and on the rocks taste way better then blended. Every.Single.Time. I will concede that they are the prettiest girl at the party when blended, however. The hot summer brings out all the fun outdoor parties. And that means most of us will be letting the good times roll. What better way to roll than with a fun, summertime watermelon margarita made with summer’s favorite fruit? If you’re looking to roll with the prettiest girl at the party, feel free to blend this up.

4 Cups Watermelon (cubed)
½ Cup Fresh Lime Juice (fresh, so squeeze those babies!)
½ Cup Triple Sec
1 Cup Patron Silver Tequila (don’t tell me if you ruin it with something else, blech)

Let’s first start by making a Puree of the 4 cups of watermelon. (can’t make a watermelon margarita with 0 watermelon!)
Place in a blender on low until smooth.
Strain watermelon through fine mesh (over a bowl) Use a spoon to press any solids left to be sure you get all the juice squeezed out. (you should end with about 2 cups)
In a pitcher, stir together the watermelon Puree, lime juice, triple sec and tequila until thoroughly combined.
Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use. (no more than 2-3 hours)
Serve on the rocks in sugar-rimmed glasses.

To help this little lady compete with the prettiest girl at your rockin’ party, make some more of those cubed watermelons and freeze them. Put them on something pointy with an umbrella at the end and pop them right in the glass. Also, a very cool little party trick I drank too much of  read about in a travel brochure is using watermelon pop rocks instead of sugar to coat the rim of the glasses.
Talk about being the life of the party!
And that’s how Grandma Juice makes a watermelon margarita! More of a Daiquiri kinda drinker? Try this Pomegranate Daiquiri Recipe I got going on!
