As I referenced in my July 4th roundup post – the last few weeks have been a total whirlwind. First, we went to Charleston and saw my dear friend get married, then I turned 30 and celebrated with some amazing friends with fancy sushi lunch and pedicures, then my parents completely surprised me and drove 12 hours to visit for my birthday – I mean, to say I am blessed is an understatement.
Nevertheless, it totally put a wrench in my recipes for you because even the best laid plans sometimes run off track!
I have so many things I want to share and will be pumping them out to you as fast as I can. Some may just get put on Instagram posts for now and then get a blog post later, but I am going to work as quickly as I can!
July 4th is days away so I HAD to share this recipe with you. It might be my favorite summer recipe ever – and will definitely get brought to my July 4th parties this year. Margarita Soaked Watermelon.
Michigan has been insanely hot thus far and even though I was raised in the hot, humid South, it is tough to be outside. We needed something cool and refreshing and boozy and this was perfect. I kind of want to booze up all my fruit this summer so if you are into that – hope over here and tell me!
Margarita watermelon has only 3 ingredients (4 if you use flaky sea salt on top which I HIGHLY recommend), is super easy and can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. It’s a true no-brainer recipe. I used melon balls for this but you could totally just cube up your watermelon too, or buy cubed watermelon for the ultimate time saver. This is the ultimate simple summer recipe that is bound to be a hit at your next pool party!
Margarita Soaked Watermelon
- 1 small seedless watermelon
- 2 cups silver tequila
- 2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
- flaky sea salt (optional)
Ball or cube your watermelon and add to a large bowl or container - one with an airtight lid is recommended.
Pour tequila and lime juice over watermelon, cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
Serve cold. Add a pinch of flaky sea salt to the watermelon right before serving if desired.
