It's National Watermelon Day! If you're in search of the perfect end of summer cocktail, you've come to the right place. So grab a bottle of tequila (or vodka), a watermelon of course and get to it!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1/4 cup of water
8 cups of seedless watermelon, cubed
1/4 cup of fresh lime juice
1 1/4 cups blanco tequila (would be just as good with vodka)
Mint leaves (optional garnish or can be muddled with ice before you add watermelon juice)
Lime wedges as garnish
WHAT TO DO
1. In a blender, puree watermelon and water until smooth.
2. Strain watermelon juice, pressing gently on pulp to get as much juice as possible. Toss the pulp.
3. Pour lime juice into a pitcher. Add watermelon juice and tequila. Add ice and stir.
4. Add garnish with small watermelon slices and lime wedge. Serve cold. Makes 8 glasses
