#ThurstyThursday: Watermelon Margarita

Happy Thursty Thursday!!

Here we are on Thursday already. I'm sorry this week got away from me again. I haven't been able to do much blogging over this summer but I hope to be better. I know I said that on Monday but I'm sure once my summer program is over and I can get back on track I'll be good.

Until then, you can...almost...always count on my for Thursty Thursday!!

A friend posted a video to my Facebook timeline last week and when I watched it I knew it would be my next Thursty Thursday drink. It looked so delicious and refreshing and with our 90 degree temps lately I couldn't wait to make it and feel it slide down my throat. It didn't disappoint. It was super refreshing and delicious, but not as sweet as I had anticipated. I think next time I would experiment with a little simple syrup rather than just add sugar right to the mixture. Maybe even a little juice of some type or more triple sec.

But either way, if you like watermelon you will love this!

Watermelon Margarita
3.5 cups watermelon, cubed
1/2 cup tequila
3 tbsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. triple sec
lime for garnish

Cit a slice of lime and run it around the rim of the glass. Then rim the glass in sugar. In a blender, blend watermelon, tequila, lime juice, sugar, and triple sec. Add ice to sugar rimmed glass. Pour over ice. Cheers!!
