Easy Watermelon Margaritas

There may be Halloween costumes on display in some retail stores, and those Fall baking recipes are starting to show up in my Pinterest feed, but Summer is still in full swing in the Sopp household.  And there is nothing that speaks Summer more than these sweet, delicious Watermelon Margaritas..

I prefer buying the watermelon pre-cut from the supermarket.  Cutting a watermelon is such a job and really hard to do with Bennett crawling around my ankles.

I also love to add sea salt mixed with lime zest to the rim of the glass.  Just rub a lime wedge along the rim of the glass prior to rolling it around in the lime salt.

These Watermelon Margaritas are super easy to make and absolutely delicious.  Sipping one al fresco is a great way to enjoy the last of these summer nights.  If you end up whipping some up, I would love to hear what you think in the comment section below!

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend!

Easy Watermelon Margaritas (recipe makes 4 servings)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups of watermelon chunks (seeds removed)
Juice of one orange
Juice of one lime
3/4 cup White Tequila (I used Hornitos)
Sea salt + lime zest for salt rim
Lime wedge for garnish

Instructions:

1.  To make simple syrup, combine sugar in water in pot on medium-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.  (Simple syrup may be stored in air-tight container in refrigerator for up to one month).

2.  In a blender, blend watermelon chunks to a smooth puree (I just use my NutriBullet).  Then strain puree through a fine-mesh strainer.

3.  In a pitcher, combine strained watermelon puree, simple syrup, fresh orange juice, fresh lime juice and tequila.  

4.  Serve in glasses with lime salt rim filled with ice.  Garnish with a lime wedge.
