Spill the Beans After Dark: Watermelon Margaritas

So how about some Watermelon Margaritas to help you forget that performance by Miley Cyrus at the VMAs the other night? I didn’t see it live, as I stopped watching the year Kanye took the mic from Taylor Swift, but upon waking on Monday morning with all the talk of twerking, I looked it up. And let me tell you what, I am sorry I did, because I can’t unsee it. Wow. Just … wow.

Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon Margarita

 

  • 3 1/2 cups cubed or balled watermelon
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
  • Lime wedges (garnish)
  • More watermelon balls (garnish)
  • Sugar (for the rim)

Here you will find the best blenders for frozen drinks.

Rim chilled glasses with a lime wedge and then sugar. Next, combine watermelon, tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and then start pouring! Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired. Makes about 6 servings, so have some friends over and make it a party, because Margaritaville is a much nicer place to be than the VMAs. Just sayin’.

Cheers!
