Margarita Melon


Watermelon and summer go hand in hand. Chilled and sliced, or tossed in a salad. Crushed, sieved and drank as a Juice for a refreshing beverage. Kick it up a notch and add a little Vodka for a Melonade Martini, (search for recipe on this blog) or crush and semi-freeze it to use as a sorbet or popsicle.  One fun way with watermelon is the tasty and refreshing snack pieces of Margarita Watermelon. A drink and a snack in one!


Try this at your next adult gathering served on a bed of crushed ice. It takes some time to prepare, but it is worth the wait.  

Total time ~ 1 hour 20 minutes (not all active time) What a great idea for this summer cocktail!

1 watermelon, cut into 3 inch triangles

1 cup of your choice tequila

1/3 cup triple sec

1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

1/4 cup margarita salt, for garnish

Zest of 1 lime, for garnish

Place watermelon in a large glass baking dish or rimmed serving tray. Pour over tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Let soak 1 hour in the fridge. On a small side-plate, mix together salt and lime zest.

Use cocktail sticks or small forks to pick up triangles. Dip watermelon slices in salt mixture and enjoy.
