Thirsty Thursdays: Watermelon Margarita Slushie

May 15, 2014

Nothing is better poolside then an icy watermelon margarita.  Frozen cubes of watermelon are pureed with tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice.  If you prefer your margaritas with a little kick, feel free to add a half a jalapeno or chipotle to the blender.  This cocktail is great for a crowd so if you're planning a Memorial Day barbecue, watermelon margaritas should be on the menu.

Watermelon Margarita
Serves 4

4 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
2 parts JDK & Sons™ O3 Premium Orange Liqueur
3 cups seedless watermelon, chilled and cut into pieces
½ cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup ice

Freeze cubed watermelon in a plastic bag for a minimum of 2 hours. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in glasses rimmed with salt and garnish with a lime or watermelon wedge.
