Recipe Notes

For a blended watermelon margarita cut watermelon in chunks and freeze on baking sheet OR add 1 1/2 cups of ice to the blender with the listed ingredients. 

Sweetened lime juice can be purchased at the grocery store in the liquor section.  Make your own by combining 1  cup of water, 1 cup of sweetener (sugar or sugar alternative) in a small sauce pan and heat until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat and mix in 1 1/3 cups fresh lime juice.  Cool and store in the refrigerator.
