The margarita is a drink with a storied history and a million variations. This Cinco de Mayo put a little twist on the old stand-by with this refreshing watermelon version.
Because of the fruit’s natural sweetness this cocktail won’t need much sugar, which means each serving is a mere 105 calories. To finish, add a bit of lime juice for a touch of citrus and rim the glasses with sugar. Garnish your completed cocktails with lime wedges and melon balls for a little extra flair and enjoy!
1. Place 2 teaspoons sugar in a saucer. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with 1 lime wedge; spin rim of each glass in sugar to coat. Set prepared glasses aside.
2. Combine watermelon and next 4 ingredients (through Triple Sec) in a blender; process until smooth. Fill each prepared glass with 1/2 cup crushed ice. Add 1/2 cup margarita to each glass. Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired.
