Today is National Margarita Day, right smack dab in the middle of winter! I know that watermelon might not be the first flavour you think of when concocting (or ordering) a margarita, but trust me. This summer when you have all that extra watermelon in your fridge that you don’t know what to do with (doesn’t that happen every year?) this is a tasty and refreshing way to use it all up!
2 teaspoons sugar $0.02
1 lime wedge, plus more for garnish $0.10
3 1/2 cups watermelon, cubed and seeded $1.99
1/2 cup tequila $1.75
2 tablespoons sugar $0.02
Juice of one lime $0.50
1 tablespoon Triple Sec or other orange flavoured liqueur $0.43
1/2 cup crushed ice Free!
Total cost $4.81
Cost per serving $1.20
1.) Rub the rims of each glass with a lime wedge and then place 2 teaspoons of sugar onto a plate. Spin the glasses, upside-down, in the sugar to coat the rims and set aside.
2.) Place the watermelon, tequila, 2 tablespoons of sugar, lime juice, Triple Sec, and crushed ice into a blender and puree until smooth. Pour margaritas into glasses and garnish with lime wedges.
3.) Serve and enjoy!
