Cocktails Get Local: Shaking Up a Watermelon Margarita (Video)

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Bring summer watermelon into your cocktails for an out-of-this-world margarita that is dangerously delicious.

Though shaking up puréed watermelon along with tequila, fresh citrus, and a few other ingredients comes awfully close.

Here’s a handy five-minute how-to video for you, just in time for the long weekend.

In my opinion, a watermelon margarita on the rocks is quite possibly the perfect cocktail for a Mexican-themed summer party or a holiday weekend. (Or Cinco de Mayo. obviously.)

Or when you just need a little celebration all on your own.

PS. That big pot behind me? Yeah, that’s a tortilla soup, one of my favorite summer suppers made from freshly shucked corn. The recipe, with a goodly amount of detail and cooking photos, is here. Just in case you were wondering. Good match for the margarita, too!
