Thirsty Thursday: Watermelon Margarita

I wish I could say that I make Watermelon Margaritas only when I'm desperately craving one. But the truth is, the melons I bring home are so dang big that 1/4 of the way through the fruit I'm over it. Enter Watermelon Margarita. The great thing about watermelon is that when frozen, it doubles as the ice cubes, preventing your blended drink from getting watered down.

2-3 cups cubed watermelon (make sure you remove all the seeds!)
2 ounces silver tequila
1 ounces triple sec
2 ounces sweet & sour (look for something natural and NOT bright yellow)

Step 1: Slice some cubes of watermelon and freeze until solid

Step 2: Put the frozen cubes into a blender along with the tequila, triple sec, sweet and sour, and blend until smooth

Step 3: Salt the rim, pour in the blended mixture, and garnish with a lime or watermelon balls
