Watermelon Margaritas

Warning - these go down easy! That's a good thing.

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!!

Serve these preferably in beach themed glasses!
Bad photo but you can still see the pretty color

Watermelon Margaritas

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 Cointreau
Ice 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.
