INGREDIENTS

1/4 Cup Water

¼ Cup Sugar

14 Cups Diced Seedless Watermelon

¼ Cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice

8 Sprigs Mint Leaves For Garnish

8 Lime Slices For Garnish

1 ¼ Cups Good Quality Tequila

Ice

 

Pour the water and sugar into a small saucepan.  Bring the mixture to a simmer for 1 minute.  Remove from the heat and let cool.  In a blender or food processor puree the watermelon.  You want the watermelon to be nice and smooth.  Strain the watermelon over a large bowl and throw away any pulp.  You want to get as much watermelon juice as possible.  In a large pitcher combine the sugar water with the lime juice.  Add the watermelon juice and tequila.  Store in the refrigerator for 3 hours.  Pour the cocktails into tall glasses filled with ice.  Garnish with mint sprigs and lime slices and serve.  Serves 8
