My friend Marla made these for us the other night, and they are deeeelish! A perfect summer drink. They are refreshing and light. Plus, don't you always enjoy drinks with lots of fruit so they feel kinda healthy? I also like that the watermelon doesn't overpower the tequila. I like to taste the tequila in my margaritas and not just drown it out.
Enjoy some this weekend. Happy Friday!!

Recipe from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam
3 cups cubed watermelon
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup of sugar (original recipe calls for 1/3 cup)
1 cup of tequila
1/2 cup Grand Marnier or CointreauIce and lime wedges for serving
In a blender or food processor, pulse watermelon and sugar until smooth. In a pitcher, combine watermelon, lime juice, tequila and Grand Marnier and stir to blend. Serve over ice and garnish with lime wedges. Original recipe is for a frozen margarita, and if you'd like to do that, you can just add 2 cups of ice to the blender in the first step. Makes 6 servings.
