advice on margs
watermelon juice is the shit. it tastes like the best parts of summer distilled. if you don't have a juicer you can still make this in a blender, you'll just have a thicker consistency, and if you don't have a blender then wtf?.
even though she hates tequila @jesselynndawson very much enjoyed this cocktail, the watermelon juice does a good job of masking the tequila. moral of the story: make this for friends because they will be impressed.
the way to go
for the watermelon juice
1/2 of a medium sized watermelon
cut chunks of watermelon and discard the rind. run watermelon through a juicer and set the juice aside. if using a blender place watermelon in blender and pulse until smooth.
for the marg
makes one drink
1/2 cup of fresh watermelon juice
1 oz of lime juice (about a half a small lime)
1 &1/2 oz contrieau
1 &1/2 oz tequila
splash of soda water
kosher salt for rim
watermelon slices & lime wedges for garnish
run lime around the rim of a tall glass and dip it into a plate filled with kosher salt. then in a cocktail shaker full of ice pour in watermelon juice and lime juice along with cointreau and tequila and then shake vigoursly for a few seconds. pour back into tall salt rimmed glass and top with a splash of club soda and garnish with watermelon & lime. cheers
