Miguels Watermelon Margarita


Puree watermelon with a splash of water in the food processor until smooth.

To make the margaritas, add watermelon juice, lime juice, sugar, tequila and a handful of ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously to combine. Sample a small amount and adjust flavour as needed, i.e.: adding more watermelon juice for sweetness, lime juice for acidity, or tequila for strength of alcohol.

Line the rim of 2 serving glasses with lime juice and a mixture of sugar and sea salt (optional). Pour margaritas straight from cocktail shaker into the serving glasses. Enjoy!
