Here's another great idea for produce from the farmer's market. I got the recipe from The Commercial Appeal, and they cited Arlen Gargagliano's Mambo Mixers as their source. In any case, we made this with a luscious watermelon we picked up at last Saturday's farmer's market, and it was fun and refreshing! There are no photos of the frothy pink drinks, because we were too busy enjoying them to photograph them.
4 T. fresh lime juice plus 1 lime wedge and 2 full-moon lime slices for garnish
2 t. Kosher salt OR 2 t. granulated sugar (for the rim - you choose)
3 oz. tequila (El Mayor is a good brand that isn't expensive.)
1.5 c. watermelon, seeded and diced
1.5 t. Cointreau (or other orange liqueur)
2.5 t. superfine sugar, or to taste
2 c. ice cubes
Rub the rims of 2 chilled (optional) margarita or cocktail glasses with the lime wedge. Pour the salt or sugar (whichever you chose) on a plate and press the rim of the glasses into it, turning gently until the rims are evenly coated. Shake off excess.
Combine the lime juice, tequila, watermelon, superfine sugar, and ice cubes in a blender. Process until smooth. Pour into the prepared glasses. Garnish with lime slices, and serve. Serves 2.
