Watermelon Margaritas

Watermelon Margarita

We had a big BBQ over the 4th of July weekend and of course, abiding by American standards, I bought a big watermelon.  Well actually, I thought I bought a small watermelon, or at least a smallER watermelon, but it was still entirely too much for our party.  So, I served half of it in cut wedges, and cubed the other half and froze them on a baking sheet.  Once they were frozen, I stored them in plastic bags.

Figuring, surely, someday, I would find a use for frozen watermelon… right?  ?

Well, magically, then I did!  Sometimes I swear it’s like Pinterest reads my mind.  Scrolling through just after our party, BOOM, up pops this recipe for //Watermelon Margaritas//.  The good news is, I had all the ingredients on hand, except for the simple syrup, which I could whip up real quick anyway (in case you don’t know: equal parts sugar + water simmered over low heat until the sugar has evaporated).  So, as soon as the opportunity presented itself, I made these margaritas…. and then, I made more…. and then I made some more….

They were SO good.  SO.  GOOD.  And I still have frozen watermelon in my freezer, so I reckon I may go home and have another one tonight.  #drinkydrinkyfuntime  With a little bit of prep, you will have a bar-worthy drink to serve to your guests.  Or, to just yourself, if you’re like me.  And there ain’t nothing wrong with that.
