Cocktail recipe for watermelon margaritaThis simple-to-make cocktail puts a delicious twist on summer sipping from Brooke Parkhurst and James Briscione, authors of Just Married and Cooking: 200 Recipes for Living, Eating, and Entertaining Together.

Serves 6 to 8

12 ounces watermelon juice
2 ounces lime juice
4 ounces Triple Sec
8 ounces silver tequila
1 lime, cut into wedges
Salt for glasses (optional)

To make watermelon juice, cut fresh watermelon into chunks, place in a blender or food processor, and puree until smooth. Pour the puree through a fine-mesh strainer. One medium watermelon will make 6 to 8 cups juice.

Fill a large pitcher halfway with ice. Add the watermelon juice, lime juice, Triple Sec, and tequila and stir to chill thoroughly. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a martini glass and dip the glass into a plate of salt to coat the rim. Fill with the mixed margarita and garnish with the lime wedge.
