There’s something about summer.

Maybe it’s warmth of the sun on your shoulders, the cool graze of water as you pass by your kiddos playing in the sprinkler, or the tart, but sweet flavors of your favorite summer fruits. Each moment of this season of freedom seems to ignite some kind of inner magic that delights and nourishes your soul.

Personally, my favorite part of summer is sitting in the sunshine with a large brimmed hat, a book in one hand, and a refreshingly cold drink near the other. What drink, you might ask? This summer, I’m planning on keeping my kitchen stocked to make my latest fave – a beverage so good that it could even make the most stormy, dreary, windy day (Oklahomie here) seem like paradise.

Enter the virgin watermelon-mint margarita.

To dive in all you will need is the following ingredients/tools:

  • Fresh watermelon chunks, seedless and frozen (grab a melon at your local farmer’s market and then carve it up and store in a few gallon sized ziplock freezer bags)
  • 2 limes (you’ll use the juice and zest of both of these, minus one small wedge for garnish)
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup honey, plus a tiny bit for the glass
  • coarse sea salt (pink himalayan is my personal fave)
  • a blender

To create, add 1 cup frozen watermelon to blender.

Cut both limes in half, and then cut one small wedge of one lime and set aside.

Juice the remaining limes into the blender, then drizzle in honey.

Using a zester/microplane, zest the outside of your limes and then sprinkle into blender along with all but one of your mint leaves. (Leave out the prettiest one for garnish)

Blend. (You might need to drizzle in a bit of water to thin this out to your liking depending on what consistency you prefer)

Coat the rim of your glass of choice in a little honey (your fingertip or a pastry brush will do the trick) then dip into a plate of coarse sea salt. (This sweet and salty combo is money, let me tell you!)

Garnish with lime and mint leaf.

Kick back with your favorite book and enjoy 🙂
