watermelon margarita

September 3rd, 2010

**big sigh**. Life’s been a little tough lately… nothing extreme, just work and a nasty cold, but enough that I’ve been worn out and not into looking at my computer when I get home. I know you’ll understand… I think it happens to all of us (at least I hope so!). This week I’m pulling out another drink from the supper club, a little number that combines a delicious summer fruit with a delicious mexican beverage, alas, the watermelon margarita. A little salty, a little sweet, a little strong. What more does a busy girl need?

Cheers! To a long weekend and an even longer week behind us!

Rub the rim of the glass with the lime and dip in salt. Add ice to the glass and set aside.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker along with some ice and shake away (for about 12 seconds).

Strain into the salt rimmed glass, garnish with a watermelon slice if you so desire, and drink up! Cheers!
