I had a big bowl of watermelon left over from church on Sunday. It was my turn to make snacks, so I provided three options: a lovely fruit salad, some Trader Joe's cookies, and two pans full of the most decadently over-caloric coffee cake that anyone has ever thought to make.
It went down like this: the coffeecake was hoovered up in minutes. The Trader Joes cookies were likewise consumed. Two older ladies tried a splash of fruit to go along with their coffeecake, and I came home with a big, healthy bowl of fruit all for my very own.
Sigh. I tried.
So of course tonight I had to make a watermelon margarita or two. What, waste all that fruit? Or worse, eat all that fruit plain?
I always hear how much people love these fruity margaritas. Watermelon. Mango. Peach.
I'll tell you my favorite margarita recipe: buy very good tequila (I like that Corralejo in the blue bottle). Pour it in a shot glass. Sip and enjoy as you gaze on a lovely still life composed of bottle of Grand Marnier, an orange, and a lime. You can add a watermelon or a mango if you wish. THAT's my kind of drink.
Here's a link to a real watermelon margarita recipe because I feel sorry for those that were duped by my title into coming here. Caveat: I have not tried it, but it looks pretty standard.
