Celebratory Watermelon Margaritas Served Up in a Livliga Beverage Glass!
 

There are many reasons to celebrate life and special events. The key is to have a fun, healthy drink you enjoy that can add to your sense of celebration without costing you a week’s worth of calories. Also, in this day and age, you want a drink to serve that can be offered with or without alcohol…as we have done below. During the summer months a favorite of ours is to create mixed drinks with fresh fruit. The fresh fruit punches up the flavor and keeps the calories and carbs down since very little or no added sugar is necessary. Here we offer a Watermelon Margarita, originally from a @CookingLight recipe, that has both an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version.

How to Make a Watermelon Margarita
 

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons sugar (optional: for the rim of the glass)
  • 1 lime wedge (optional: for the rim of the glass)
  • 3 ½ cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • ½ cup tequila or coconut water (*nav)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur) or fresh orange juice (*nav)
  • Lime wedges or watermelon balls (optional)


*non-alcoholic version

Directions

  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. If you prefer not to use the sugar, then rim the glass with the lime only.

  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.
