Don’t Drink the Punch

Standard

EAT the watermelon instead!!  Last 4th of July Will and I had our first annual “Pig Pick’n” and some of the girls brought this awesome spiked watermelon.  It was so easy to eat and tasted kind of like a margarita.  The recipe can be found at Martha Stewart’s website.

Tequila Soaked Watermelon

  • 1 small seedless watermelon, red or yellow, quartered and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 2 limes, halved or cut into wedges
  • Flaked sea salt or coarse salt

 

Preparation:

Arrange watermelon in a single layer in two 9-by-13-inch baking dishes. Bring sugar, water, tequila, and Triple Sec to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Let cool slightly. Pour syrup over watermelon wedges, and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes.

Remove watermelon from syrup, and arrange on a platter. Squeeze limes over melon, and season with salt.
