Mixed Drinks

With the weekend coming up & Valentine's Day too, here's some of my favorite mixed alcoholic drinks:
Watermelon Margarita
Ingredients:
16 oz. seeded & blended watermelon
1/2 Lime
6 oz. Tequila
3 oz. Triple Sec
1 Tbsp. sugar

Mixing instructions:
Cut up watermelon, removing seeds. Liquify in blender until you have about 16 oz. Add remaining ingredients, top with ice and blend until smooth. Taste and add sugar if watermelon is not sweet enough. This works well with sugar on the rim of the glass.
{If you go to LongHorn, you can get this drink with watermelon flavored sugar on the glass rim!}
