Watermelon, no one refuse to have this fruit. Not only cooling to summer heat but also these are low in calories. When I wanted to try a refreshing drink for mid afternoon, I came across watermelon margarita recipe. Luckily I had watermelon in fridge, soon nailed it.
Original margarita is a cocktail recipe with a combination of taquila, triple sec and lime juice(infn as found in goggle), but being a non-alcoholic i wanted to try it as a complete mocktail drink. This is a super quick, refreshing drink which you can make in a jiffy. Here goes the recipe…
Preparation Time : 15 minutes
Yield : serves 4
Ripe watermelon – 2 cups, cubed
Orange Juice – 1/2 cup
Fresh Mint leaves – 3 to 4
Juice of 3 lime
Ice cubes as needed
Sugar as per taste(optional)
Salt, to decorate rims of glass
Rub lime around rim of each glass, put salt on a plate, preferably flat plate. Dip top of each glass in salt. Place the glasses into freezer to chill.
Add watermelon cubes to the blender. Add the orange juice, mint leaves and ice cubes. Also sugar only if needed. Blend until watermelon is pureed & the ice is crushed.
Mix lime juice to it.
Fill salt rimmed glasses with ice, pour the margarita over and garnish with lime. Enjoy!!
I used a seedless melon, but blend and strain if your watermelon contains seeds. Also i did not use sugar because my watermelon tastes very sweet.
Apple juice and /or any other fruit juice can be used.
Serve with salt or sugar on the rim of glass as per taste preference.
