Margaritas are one of those easy sipping, thirst quenching cocktails that when made right always lead to wanting more.

I have been victim on occasion to heavy hands at blender. By this I mean that as the party progresses, so does the amount of tequila in the mix.

My advice is to have several batches pre-mixed so that regardless of who holds captaincy at the blender, each batch remains consistent and your guests stay reasonably sober.

LISTEN: Foodie Friday — Wonderful watermelon

What you’ll need

  • 1 ½ cups frozen limeade concentrate
  • 3 cups water
  • ¾ cup tequila
  • ¼ cup Triple sec or other orange flavoured liqueur
  • ½ cup peeled and seeded watermelon

How to do it

  • In a large jug mix the limeade, water, tequila and Triple sec
  • Rub the rim of your glasses with a cut lemon and dip into the salt
  • When ready to serve pour some of the mixture into your blender with about ¾ cup of ice cubes and the watermelon
  • Process until smooth and frosty. Pour into the prepared glasses and enjoy
