You Might have been one of the kazillion people that saw the post about the watermelon soaked in tequila, then dipped in coarse salt….BOOM! A Watermelon Margarita you can eat!! Holy Mother of fruit ~ I KNEW I had to try it….Immediately!
So I bought a watermelon (I love how it’s a PERSONAL watermelon, which means it’s JUST for me!), gathered my tequila (of COURSE I already had tequila) and went to work.
I cut the pieces up, only because I thought it’d be easier and less messy and Lord knows I don’t need any help being messy!
Then I put them in a shallow bowl, poured some tequila and waited through the longest 30 minutes in the history of timers.
I didn’t cover the watermelon with the tequila, but did turn the watermelon over about half way thru the soaking process (otherwise known as when I went over to see what was happening in that bowl and said, “Hey, maybe I should turn these over”.)
FINALLY, the timer ended and I got a few pieces out, put them on my beautiful shoe plate, and put too much salt on them.
Oh. My. GGGGGGGGG!
These were absolutely amazing!! I might even put less tequila next time, because they definitely had a twang…..I could feel it after only 5 or 10 pieces 😉
I also didn’t refrigerate mine because I don’t like cold foods. Didn’t seem to matter. At. ALL!
The funniest part….Mac came home while I was on the phone and spied the watermelon in the bowl. Already cut up and ready to eat. Which he did. And if I only had a picture of his face when he tasted the tequila….bwahahahaha!
The best part….I still have half my Personal Watermelon Left!!!
