Notes

Wow your friends by creating a fun watermelon punch bowl to serve your delicious margarita. Using a sharp knife, carefully trim the bottom of a seedless watermelon to make it a flat surface. Next, cut off the top (about ¼ of the watermelon) and hollow out the flesh with a melon baller. Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to scrape the inside walls of the watermelon clean. Fill with your cocktail and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
  • 2 parts orange liqueur
  • 3 Cups seedless watermelon, chilled and cut into pieces
  • ½ Cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 Cup ice

Directions

Freeze cubed watermelon in a plastic bag for a minimum of 2 hours. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in glasses rimmed with salt and garnish with a lime or watermelon wedge. Salud!

Watermelon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
