Dulcinea® Pureheart® Watermelon Margarita
Make a margarita that tastes as amazing as it looks with a blend of sweet watermelon, lime juice and tequila.
Yields 3-4 servings
- 1 Pound Dulcinea® PureHeart® Mini Seedless Watermelon cubes, frozen (This is about 2-3 cups)
- 2 limes, peel sliced into thin zests, and then juiced
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3 ozs tequila
- 4 ice cubes
- 2 tablespoons Kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
In a small dish, mix the salt and sugar. Rub the rims of 3-4 margarita glasses with a little lime zest and invert into the sugar and salt mixture to coat the rims of the glasses. Make sugar syrup with the lime juice, zest and sugar, heating them together in a sauce pan until boiling. Cool quickly by pouring into another shallow bowl and put in the freezer. When the syrup is cool, strain out the zest and place in blender with melon cubes, tequila and ice cubes. Blend until the drink is slushy and all ice is ground fine. Pour the drink into the prepared glasses and garnish with a triangle of watermelon.
