This has been the perfect birthday weekend! It kicked off Friday night at a friend’s house watching the movie Frozen. I finally got to see what all the hooplah was about, and I liked that movie a lot. On Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends and family and played Bingo at Lucky 13’s. We didn’t win anything, but quite a few of us were close. I’m surprised I was able to still play Bingo, considering the fact, that I had a huge punch bowl. I ended up getting some awesome presents too. My brother got me a kitchen blow torch for my birthday, so I can make things like Creme Brulee and toast marshmallows. Excited to try making that. I also got some flowers, a Ouija board, some new work out clothes, and some new sandles. Happy Birthday to me!
Now it’s Sunday, and I’m still drunk with these Watermelon Margaritas. Heck, I don’t have to work tomorrow because our Birthday is considered a Holiday at my work place. It’s a 3 day weekend for me! The key to a good Watermelon margarita is finding the sweetest watermelon you can find. Usually, to look for a really ripe watermelon, I was told to look for a yellow bottom. That means it’s been sitting out in the field longer so it’s sweeter. If anybody else has any tricks for finding a fresh watermelon, please feel free and leave a comment below.
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 lime wedge
- 3½ cups cubed seeded watermelon $
- ½ cup tequila
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur)
- Lime wedges or watermelon balls (optional)
- 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.
- Combine watermelon and next 4 ingredients (through Triple Sec) in a blender; process until smooth. Fill each prepared glass with ½ cup crushed ice. Add ½ cup margarita to each glass. Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired.
