Honeydew Margarita

Print Email

Adapted from Cuisine at Home

Rub Glasses With; Coat In:

Lime Wedges
Kosher salt or sugar

Blend:

4 cups ice cubes
3 cups honeydew melon, peeled, seeded, cut into chunks
3/4 cup tequila
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 drop of green food coloring (optional)

Garnish Margaritas With:
Honeydew spears
Sprigs of fresh mint

Rub the rims of 4-6 cocktail glasses with limes, then coat in salt or sugar (depending on your taste preference). I like sugar, the Wild Boar likes salt. Go figure.

Blend ice, melon, tequila, honey and lime juice in a blender until smooth.

Divide between prepared glasses. Garnish with melon and mint sprigs.
