...watermelon margarita bridal shower...

We've had a lot of these of late and since they've showed up at a lovely shower hosted by Jennifer, I've had several people ask for the recipe.  I will keep it to myself no longer.  Make these up for a refreshing treat and a great marg without weird additives like "yellow #5."  These are about as natural as you can go, with little sugar and a great taste.

Recipe thanks to Cooking Light.  I sometimes add ice into the blender at the end so their especially cold.

  • 3 1/2 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon triple sec
Combine the above in a blender, add ice, and enjoy!

For more on the Good Life, I can't help but post some pictures from the shower.  Jennifer is quite the hostess and added a lot of details with little signs, fun games, and really yummy lemon tarts, my favorite cheese (Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog) and really awesome scones using a recipe from a restaurant in Seattle. It was a very fun afternoon with some great ladies!  Thanks, Jennifer!
