  Makes 4 cocktails
For these refreshing ruby-colored cocktails, freeze chunks of melon (select a dead-ripe, juicy, flavorful one). Blended with the melon as the only chilling agent, the drinks are not diluted and the delicate flavor of the fruit comes through. Cold watermelon can be substituted.
4 cups 1-inch chunks seedless watermelon
4 lime wedges
kosher salt on a small plate
3/4 cup Triple Citrus tequila or any good-quality tequila
1/2 cup triple sec
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
Frozen Watermelon Margaritas Recipe at
Place the melon chunks in a plastic bag, and freeze until solid.

Run the lime wedge around the rim of a large stemmed cocktail glass. Dip the moistened rim in salt. Set the lime wedge and glass aside. Repeat with the remaining wedges and 3 more glasses.

Transfer about 3/4 of the melon chunks, separating them, to a blender jar. Add the tequila, Triple Sec, and lime juice and blend until fairly smooth. Add the remaining melon and blend until smooth. Divide the cocktail mixture among the prepared glasses. Squeeze a lime wedge into each cocktail, drop the wedge into the glass, and serve immediately.

For an extra touch of color and flavor, mix 2 teaspoons finely minced lime zest (colored peel) into the salt before rimming the glass.

Wow - refreshing!
First tried this when I had some leftover watermelon - now I buy watermelon and freeze chunks of it just for this recipe. I don't like salt on my margaritas, so I rim the glass with sugar instead. Very pretty, very easy to make and totally refreshing. The only downside is that you don't realize that it has the tequila and triple sec in be careful!
