Happy Cinco De Mayo

Watermelon Agua Fresca

8 cups watermelon pieces (about 2 1/2 pounds), plus 8 small wedges 1 cup silver tequila 1/4 cup triple sec 4 to 6 limes, cut into wedges Ice, for serving

Directions:Using a blender or food processor, puree the watermelon pieces in batches; strain into a large pitcher. Stir in the tequila and triple sec and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Squeeze a few lime wedges into the agua fresca. Serve over ice, with additional lime and watermelon wedges on the side.

The basics of a Margarita is simple (and sometimes simplicity is best): Tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice. Using only these three ingredients equals a true Margarita. Try 2 oz Tequila, 1 oz orange liqueur, and 1 oz fresh lime juice then shake that with ice and strain that into a glass with or without ice. This is the original way.The sweet orange liqueur should be all the sweetness a true Margarita needs.
