Recipe from Sandra Lee from Food Network.
- 4 lbs seedless watermelon
- 2 cups tequila
- 1 cup triple sec
- carbonated lemon-lime beverage (recommended -- Sprite)
- With a knife, shave off the stem end of the watermelon, just enough so that it sits flat. Cut the top off the watermelon, about 3 inches down. Scoop out half of the watermelon with a melon baller and set aside.
- Scoop out remaining watermelon, leaving the rind-bowl. This will be your punch bowl. Transfer scooped out melon (not the melon balls) to a blender and puree; may be done in batches. Push watermelon puree through a strainer to remove pulp and any seeds. Return watermelon water to the watermelon punch bowl. Stir in tequila, triple sec, and melon balls. Top off with lemon-lime soda. Serve cold over ice.
AUSSIE SWAP #64: Fabulous - made this for our Memorial Day picnic and it was a hit!!
This is a great drink with a lot of potential. We were a tasting panel of 6 people to which I halved the recipe. The serving size is not that generous or maybe we simply drink too much... We felt that the drink needed more of a zing and less sweetness, more lime and perhaps using perrier instead of Sprite. Made for Photo Tag
Wow !! Fantasic flavorful drink. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
