I’m so sad that summer is quickly coming to a close. I’m trying desperately to hang on to every last minute of it.
One of my favorite things about summer is fresh fruit. I know that’s surprising based on my non-diet lifestyle. But I love sweets and fruits qualify.
So I recently bought a whole watermelon at Trader Joe’s on a whim. I really attribute it to the fact it was 9 AM on a Saturday and I had just left barre class and hadn’t really eaten or had coffee. I was trolling the fruit section and was like “$3.99 for 5 watermelon spears! I can have a whole watermelon for $3.29!” Note, the realist in me was back in my comfy bed while my accounting degree apparently decided to wake up for once in 5 years.
So what the hell do you do when life gives you 2 gallon size ziplocs of watermelon? Make margaritas.
These are super easy to make and perfect for the last pool days of summer.
For 6 servings, pull together:
6(ish) cups of seedless watermelon
1 cup of tequila
1 tsp agave nectar
Juice of 2 Limes – you can use artificial lime juice, no one will judge you
Optional – 1/4 cup orange liquer
So when it comes to frozen drinks, I like to start with ice in my blender first.
Then toss everything else in on top of your ice.
Once it’s really well blended, go ahead and pour yourself a drink, you’ve earned it!
Super simple to make and 100 million times better than drinking regular watermelon juice, am I right?
Take that, juice cleanses.
So you made this drink and loved it and want the world to know? I want to see it! Instagram, tweet, facebook, periscope, whatever it and tag me and use #astudyinchic on social media and I may share your photo!
