Watermelon margaritas are refreshing, somewhat sweet margaritas that may be served on the rocks or frozen! For a double dose of melon, serve with a watermelon blackberry salad.
Hello, everyone! I hadn’t intended to stay gone for so long, but you know what? That was just what I needed. Things are hectic around here, and when your day job is working for a political organization, the final few months before an election are especially stressful.
How are things going in your life? What has changed? Did you go on any exciting summer vacations? Do you have any exciting plans for the fall? Please tell me about it in the comments section! I’ve missed you all.
As for me, we had two distinct house guests stay with us for approximately a week each, so things were hectic! We went to Provincetown on each of those vacations, and I got to ride the Provincetown Fast Ferry for the first time.
I promise you, after you’ve done it, you’ll never want to drive the Cape again. That was very amazing.
My 32nd birthday was low-key and lovely: I went to a lighthouse, a new coffee shop, and had a delicious meal.
I’ve also been getting used to living with two cats (plus Penny when I have her), and it’s quite the experience. You have a lot of adapting to do if you’re not a cat lover and suddenly live with two of them.
I immediately discovered that I cannot leave open glasses of water on the counter, nor can I let curtain pulls to dangle.
Rugs are out, and my leather sofa isn’t in great shape. It does, however, lend itself to instances like this:
Although though summer is officially ended, I’m not going to let that stop me from sharing this delightful dish with you.
Do you understand why? Because there is never a bad moment for a margarita, particularly a Watermelon Margarita.
Watermelons may be out of season in most locations, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be found. That doesn’t mean you can’t scoop one up right now, cut it into cubes, and freeze it for later (thats a pro tip from me to you youre welcome).
If you use frozen watermelon, it will simply be a slushier drink, which I don’t see as a problem.
Fruity drinks terrify people because they believe they take a lot of preparation, but they don’t!
In less than 15 minutes, you can have everything ready to go and be relaxing on the porch with some chips and guac.
Are you persuaded yet? Then continue reading.
This time, I created two versions: one with a salt rim and another with Swirling Watermelon Rimmer sugar. I like it both ways; it’s all a question of taste.
Personally, I adore the burst of color this sugar brings to the appearance, and it’s lovely when it begins pouring down into the drink itself.
Stirrings was founded on Nantucket, did you know? I didn’t notice it until after the move, when we were unloading boxes and I was sitting on the kitchen floor (and crying because I was so fatigued, but that’s beside the point) and began reading some of the food packages half-heartedly.
I like Nantucket for a variety of reasons, and despite the fact that I have never there, it is on my vacation want list. And it’s not really that far away; all it takes is a car journey, a boat, and finding a reasonably priced somewhere to stay.
All I want to do is go to Cisco Brewery, photograph lighthouses, and stroll about the island looking at all the cute nautical items.
What were we discussing again? That’s correct. Margaritas with watermelon!
Can you see the empty pitcher in the background?
I meant to have it at least partly full for the photos, but I accidently drank it all for testing reasons.
You should prepare a batch of these Watermelon Margaritas and ask me over to taste test them.
Thank you very much, Bill, for being my margarita model. I believe he can corroborate that if you can obtain it, it’s not a horrible job!
