Or your own, for that matter.
The problem at our house is, it's just my husband, me, and a 4-year old who can somehow sustain full-steam, wild and crazy energy on three grapes and half a hot dog. So when we came home from Sam's Club last weekend with a 20-pound watermelon (only a slight exaggeration), I knew I needed some additional ways to use this sucker up.
How can a person go wrong with fresh fruit margaritas? What's even better about this recipe is that it's incredibly low in calories. And, if you substitute diet lemon-lime soda for a non-alcoholic version, you might even be in the negative. :-)
- 3 tablespoons sugar, separated
- 3 1/2 cups watermelon
- 1/2 cup tequila (or lemon-lime soda)
- 1 tablespoon triple-sec, or other orange liqueur
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- ice cubes
Rub a lime around the rim of your drinking glasses, then dip in sugar.
In the jar of your blender, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining ingredients. Process until smooth, then add ice cubes and crush until desired consistency is reached.
Garnish with slices of lime or melon balls.
