Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Is A Summer Snack Game-Changer
When you think of summer - especially in Texas - you think of the heat, the lake, the BBQ, and the music. There are plenty of get-togethers (probably smaller ones this year), where everyone brings something yummy to share with the group, and believe me when I tell you, this may just be your new go-to: Tequila-soaked watermelon!
Watermelon just seems to be the fruit of the summer; it's easy to eat, it cools you off, and it goes with just about everything. Now pair that with your favorite tequila and it's a game-changer. Wait for it.
Now the recipe I found on Martha Stewart Living is more than just dumping tequila over a bowl of cut up watermelon cubes. You're actually going to infuse the watermelon with the tequila to make it more delicious. So let's grab everything you need:
To start, you're going to cut the watermelon into 1-inch thick wedges. Next, you're going to make a simple syrup by adding sugar and water to a saucepan and bringing it to a boil. After the sugar dissolves, add in the triple sec and tequila.
Let the syrup cool for a short time and pour syrup over the watermelon wedges and refrigerate for 45 minutes. Change it up and turn the watermelon into popsicles by freezing them overnight.
Once the watermelon has infused, place it on a serving platter and squeeze limes on the wedges. Sprinkle the watermelon with sea salt for a finishing touch!
This is easily a summertime game-changer. Let me know when you give this one a shot!
