Although, we’re not big tequila drinkers in the Gangsta Goodies Kitchen…we are always ready to celebrate! So when we learned that July 24, 2017 has been deemed National Tequila Day, we certainly had to do our part to observe.
With a fresh watermelon in one hand, our favorite tequila in the other and a blender for mixing we came up with a refreshing Watermelon Margarita. The next time you gather with family & friends, surprise them with this nice summer cocktail…they will love it!
To create this summer delight you will need the following…
- 3 cups Seedless Watermelon – Rind removed and chopped into chunks (Put in freezer until ready to mix)
- 2-4 tablespoons Fresh squeezed Lime Juice
- 4-6 ozs Your favorite Tequila (You can use a shot glass to measure)
- 3 ozs Orange Liqueur (Triple Sec, Cointreau & Grand Marnier are most common)
- 2 ozs Ice
Place all above ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve in a frosted Margarita glass and garnish with a slice of watermelon or sprig of fresh mint
