Watermelon Margarita

I took this recipe one step further and actually served it in a carved out watermelon! It was a big hit at my 4th of July party!

Watermelon Margarita

3 cups seedless-watermelon chunks (about 1 lb. peeled watermelon)
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1/2 cup sugar (or less, to taste)
1 cup tequila
1/2 cup Grand Marnier

1. Combine watermelon, lime juice and sugar in a blender, and blend on high until completely liquid and frothy.

2. Combine in a pitcher with tequila and Grand Marnier. Fill pitcher and stir (you can chill before serving if you like).

3. Add ice to glass and pour.
