Watermelon Margarita

Makes: 16 servings
Watermelon Margarita
Ingredients
  •  Watermelon cubes, (if desired)
  •  Kosher salt
  • 10 - 11  lime wedges
  • 3  cups  Triple Sec or other orange liqueur
  • 2 - 3  cups  tequila
  • 1 1/2  cups  freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1  cup  superfine sugar or powdered sugar
  • 5  cups  seedless watermelon, chopped
Directions

1. If desired, freeze cubes of watermelon on a waxed paper-lined tray for 1 to 2 hours or until firm.

2. Place salt on a small plate. Rub rims of eight glasses with one of the lime wedges. Dip rims of glasses in salt to coat; set aside.

3. In a pitcher combine Triple Sec, tequila, lime juice, and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved.

4. Pour 1/4 cup of tequila mixture into blender or food processor with chopped watermelon (working in batches if necessary). Cover and blend or process until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Combine watermelon juice with remaining tequila mixture. Stir. Chill until ready to serve.

5. Place frozen watermelon cubes, if using, in salt-rimmed glasses. Pour tequila mixture over watermelon cubes. Garnish with remaining lime wedges.
