I first made this recipe at a cooking club called “Two to Tango”. We paired up with a friend, and made recipes that paired up. Some other pairs made Hawaiian chicken and flirtini, or shrimp salsa and mojito. I made this and Megan made a Margarita Chicken Dip. It was delicious and I knew it would be perfect for our Memorial Day Pool Party!!
1 teaspoon lime zest
½ cup water
½ cup sugar
5 cups watermelon juice
¼ cup lime juice
2 cups tequila
½ cup orange-flavored liqueur (triple sec)
Make lime simple syrup: In a small sauce pan, combine the lime zest, water, and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium while stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cool to room temperature or make in advance. (note: It tastes like fruit loops!)
Rim your glass with lime wedge and salt.
In a large pitcher, combine ¼ cup lime syrup, watermelon juice, lime juice, tequila, triple sec and ice. Stir. Pour into glass.
(note: if not serving right away, put the ice in the glass instead of the pitcher.)
Serve near pool (if possible!)
