Watermelon Margarita

By: The Martini Club

In Latin, watermelon is Citrullus Lanatus. Surprisingly, the fruit is related to cucumbers, pumpkins and squash. From ancient depictions in Egyptian hieroglyphics, it is believed that the first recorded watermelon harvest occurred nearly 5,000 years ago. Watermelons were often placed in the burial tombs of Kings to nourish them in the afterlife.

1. In a cocktail shaker, mash 3/4 cup (175 mL) cubed, seeded watermelon (this can be blended, if desired).

2. Add 1 oz gold tequila, 1/2 oz Cointreau, the juice of 1/2 fresh lime and 1 cup ice.

3. Shake sharply until well chilled and pour into a Margarita glass.

4. Garnish with a lime wheel and a fresh watermelon slice, if desired.
