  • cupstequila blanco,also called Plato or silver tequila
  • ½cuporange liqueur,such as Triple Sec or Cointreau
  • ½cuplime juice
  • 4cupswatermelon,seedless, chopped
  • simple syrup,or agave nectar, if needed to sweeten
  • kosher salt,or other high quality salt, to garnish

Instructions

  2. Pour the ingredients through a fine-mesh strainer into a pitcher, pressing the solids to get as much liquid out as you can.

  3. If desired to imbibe with flair, take a small plate or bowl and fill it with the salt.

  5. Dip the glass into the salt and give it a small 1 to 2 turns.

Recipe Notes

  • If a juicer is available, simply juice the watermelon and stir it with the other ingredients in a pitcher.
  • Buy tequila that has been aged for two months and is marked “100% de agave.” Tequilas that aren’t labeled with this are usually cut with fermented cane juice, resulting in a lower quality tequila.
  • Swap out tequila for mezcal, tequila’s smokier, wilder cousin.
  • For a frosty, thicker treat, freeze the watermelon before throwing it in the blender and skip the strainer.
