Cantaloupe margaritas are a great way to cool off your weekend. I created this recipe after a surprise melon showed up in my Imperfect Produce delivery. It took a bit of messing around with the recipe, but the bright color and surprisingly mild taste created a margarita unlike anything I’ve made before.
4 ounces silver tequila
2 ounces orange liqueur
Cut watermelon and remove seeds. Add fruit to food processor or blender, saving a few melon balls for garnish.
Blend melon until smooth and run through a fine strainer or sieve to remove pulp.
Add 5 ounces of fresh juice to a shaker with juice of two limes, tequila and orange liqueur. Add ice and shake well.
Strain margaritas into two glasses rimmed with salt and filled with ice. Garnish with melon ball and like slices. Makes 2 margaritas with extra cantaloupe juice.
