watermelon mint margaritas

IMG_9709-X2

What a great weekend we are returning from! A full three days running around Carmel, CA with friends and family, eating, drinking, shopping and beaching it up! I AM POOPED! Holidays are so much fun but always leave me feeling like I’ve been hit by a semi truck and dragged down the interstate if you know what I mean!

So today, as Everly naps, I will be slurping down a tall glass of watermelon margarita and drifting off to somewhere tropical and relaxing…all in the name of research for you of course! I mean, someones got to do it!

Cheers to you on this hot summer Tuesday!


3 cups diced watermelon (seedless preferably)

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

3-4 limes squeezed

1 1/2 cups tequila

3/4 cup triple sec

ice

salt for the rim of the glass

Combine the watermelon, lime juice tequila and triple sec in a blender and blend on high until the watermelon is pureed.

Pour over ice and stir in mint leaves. Serve immediately and please drink responsibly.
