Woo! This week has been a pretty busy one. So far, I've been a gym rockstar...yep, I have been every day this week so far.
::Patting myself on the back::
But, I will admit that going to the gym after work has cut into my cooking and photography time in the evenings. It technically stays light until almost 9pm, but before 8 is really the best light for taking pictures. And, since I've discovered a couple of select places that are actually condusive to taking natural light pictures, I'm sort of spoiled and prefer not to take pictures otherwise. So, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I try to make myself get up before work to exercise, but my body just refuses to cooperate at 5:30am. I'm still trying to figure out a good solution. I'll let you know if I figure it out!
You know what will help with the thinking process? A nice, cold margarita! But not just any margarita...a watermelon margarita. That's right. It's summer-time, and nothing says summer like a big, juicy watermelon, chopped up, mixed with tequila, and thrown in a blender! Yuu-um! I think after a few of these, I should be able to come up with a great solution. Or I just won't care anymore. What do you think?
Slightly adapted from: My Recipes
- 3 1/2 cups cubed seeded watermelon (I used a "personal" size watermelon)
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp Triple Sec
- 2 cups ice
- Combine watermelon, tequila, sugar, lime juice, triple sec in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add ice and blend combine.
- Rub a lime around the rim of your glasses, and dip in sugar for a sweet rim! Divide margarita between 2-4 glasses. Garnish with a lime or watermelon balls and enjoy!!
