Golden Watermelon Margarita

Now that it is nearing the end of October, most of us are thinking about pumpkins, butternut squash, and the like. But local farms around us are also producing lots of that other cucurbita: the watermelon. I received a lovely yellow-fleshed watermelon from a friend, and we decided to run it through Sarah's fancy-pants juicer and came up with a cocktail which is a close relative to the margarita.
We created this drink for our Mexican-inspired October dinner party. It was the perfect accompaniment to the slow cooker carnitas tacos! Sweeter than a regular margarita, but not too sweet. Just a hint of lime. The yellow juice from our golden watermelon was really lovely, but it would be ever so sweet in pink, wouldn't it?
Golden Watermelon Margarita
  • 2 ounces watermelon juice
  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1/4 of a lime
  • ice
Put watermelon juice, tequila, and triple sec into a shaker with ice. Now squeeze the lime in as well. Give it a good shake, pour, and enjoy. Makes 1 drink.
