Have you heard the skinny? We’ve got an amazing recipe we are recently obsessed with thanks to yummy summer watermelon and Casamigos tequila. There’s no added sugar in this drink, even though once you taste it you will SWEAR it’s calorie-ridden! We think this simple recipe that is just frozen watermelon and tequila is just perfection.
Blended Watermelon Tequila Cooler
1 seedless watermelon (about 5-6 lbs)
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups blanco tequila
Cut watermelon into chunks and discard rind. Purée chunks in batches in a food processor. (We used a Nutribullet.) Pour mixture through a strainer into a bowl. Pour into another bowl; whisk in lemon juice. Save any remaining watermelon juice for another use. Pour juice mixture into 4 ice cube trays (standard trays have 14 slots) and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.
To make the drinks: Blend half the watermelon cubes in a food processor until broken up, then add 1 cup tequila and whirl until blended. Pour into a pitcher and repeat with remaining ingredients.
