3 Cups Cubed Seedless Frozen Watermelon (or Fresh Watermelon for on the rocks)
1/2 Cup Tequila (for this recipe, I used Herradura Silver)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Squeezed Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Triple Sec
Sea Salt, Sugar, Tajin, or Ancho Chili Powder (to rim the glasses)
Lime wedges (garnish)
How to Rim the Glass: Pour a thin layer of sea salt, sugar, Tajin, or Ancho chili powder onto a small plate. Take a lime wedge and run it along the rim of the glass to moisten it. Then dip the rim of the glass in the salt or sweet rimmer of choice at a 45-degree angle, rotating until coated. Chill the glasses in the freezer while preparing your drink.
How to Make an On-the-Rocks Watermelon Margaritas:
*Note: to make this recipe on the rocks you’ll need to prepare each drink by the glass. All measurements by the glass are listed in the instructions below*
Make Watermelon Juice: put all of your cubed (not frozen) fresh watermelon into a blender and blend until it has turned into a smooth juice. Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer to remove extra pulp or leave as-is, depending on your preference for pulp. You will have extra fresh watermelon juice.
Shake and Serve: Fill a cocktail shaker with 2 ounces watermelon juice, 1/8 cup (1 ounce) tequila, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/8 cup (1 ounce) triple sec, and ice. Close tightly and shake like hell until the outside becomes frosty. Strain into an iced rimmed glass and garnish with mint and lime wedges.
Love the style tips!
Hello to you and pats to Oscar and Ollie. You look fresh and cool today. I want to try the taco salad. Have fun at Tybee.
Hi, Oscar! Beth, thanks for the wonderful recipe and cocktail! You look great in the wide leg pants … and inspire me.
I love your outfit! I really love everything about your look today.
I would like to see the wide leg pants on Kelly. I have a photo of me in wide leg pants and I just look wide I vowed to never wear wide leg pants again. The jacket that matches the pants is long so maybe that’s the problem. I’m just under 5 feet tall
Hi MaryLynne – Kelly here…check out my most recent post How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe for an Extended Trip (link above the comments section)
You can see a photo of me wearing the J.Crew Seaside Wide Leg Pants (in navy, petite size xs). Those same wide leg pants are also featured in my Daily Looks, and I wore them on our Nordstrom shopping trip: https://www.styleatacertainage.com/featured/nordstrom-anniversary-sale-dressig-room-diaries-petites-and-regulars/
The tips Beth lines out above about wearing a form-fitting shirt, tucking in your shirt and wearing a cropped jacket to equalize the proportions hold especially true for us petites. I suspect, as you mentioned that the length of your outer layer was culprit and not the wide leg pants. It’s all about keeping things in proportion. A long jacket with wide leg pants will tend to swallow our shorter frame. If you like wearing the wide leg pants, I urge you to give them another try! I hope that helps! xo Kelly
Your outfit looks cool and relaxed today, perfect for summer.
When you discuss current trends, could you also present appropriate footwear for those looks , and include why?
Very nice outfit, light and cool!
As to your recipe, those are my all time favorite tortilla chips! I too shop at Publix, here in South Florida and I those chips are the best. They’re thin and crispy, almost like in a restaurant!!!
Thanks for posting this recipe for taco salad, I’ve been needing some more ideas for warm weather recipes. Happy weekend to you, Oscar and Ollie!
Oh I love your Oscar. I have a Zoey (Tricolor Springer Spaniel) and a Hannah (orange and white Brittany Spaniel). They send lots of licks to Oscar.
Now your outfit was lovely and beautifully comfortable looking. Thank you for your recipes! Delish! I love that you combine pretty fashion and your yummy recipes.
