Frozen Watermelon Margarita

This is a recipe that I found on the Food Network website. I decided to try it out when we had some friends over for dinner. It was really really good! The great thing is that you don't add any extra sugar to the recipe...the sweetness comes from the fruit.

Frozen Watermelon Margarita

2 1/2 cups seedless (or seeded) watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes, rind discarded before measuring

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (don't skimp on this)

4 ounces tequila

2 ounces orange flavored liqueur (I used orange flavored vodka)

1 1/2 cups ice

Lime wheel or watermelon wedge, for garnish


Put cut watermelon in a plastic bag and place in freezer for a minimum of 2 hours. (If time does not permit this step, add a few extra ice cubes when blending, the difference is not that significant.)

Stuff all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. Garnish rim of glass with a lime wheel or a watermelon wedge and serve immediately.
