These frozen raspberry watermelon margaritas are perfect for summer entertaining! Fresh, light, easy to make and so refreshing, everyone will absolutely love them!
Happy 4th of July! It’s crazy to think that this is our second 4th of July in America. Just this time last year we were in San Franscisco driving an RV up the California coast! How quickly has a year gone already?
Actually, it’s a little scary to think that it’s already July! And I’m starting to panic because I keep thinking that it’s only just got hot in Portland, and that the warm weather will be over before I know it!
We have a jam packed July ahead of us, starting this weekend. I’m heading to Denver for a football tournament, then later in the month my PARENTS ARE VISITING! I am SO excited, they have never been to America before so I can’t wait to show them around PDX and all of our favourite little places! I’m actually flying over to NYC at the start of August to meet them for a couple of days, so if you have any food recommendations for NYC I’d love to hear about them!
But for the moment…
Let’s talk about these frozen raspberry watermelon margaritas!
I was thinking about a recipe to post today, and I didn’t feel like it was right to make a red, blue and white dessert or dish as I’m not American and then I realised that everyone needs a killer cocktail for a party!
I had a huge watermelon to finish up in the fridge, and also remembered how damn delicious my grapefruit margaritas were from May.
And then I thought about how hot it was at the moment, and how delicious a frozen cocktail would be.
And then, the idea that cemented this recipe was the fact that we went berry picking on Sunday and got about 4.5lbs of raspberries that are SO delicious!
Thus, the frozen raspberry watermelon margarita was done, and it was the best.thing.ever!
These frozen raspberry watermelon margaritas are so refreshing and light and require 5 simple ingredients – watermelon, raspberry, tequila, lime juice and ice. Seriously, how easy is that!
I haven’t tried, but I reckon these would be so, so SO good too if you wanted to substitute the tequila for vodka and have a frozen raspberry watermelon slushie instead! OMG.
But anyways, you guys should def have a crack at making these, they are so delicious and would be perfect for celebrating any time of the year! And remember, tag us on instagram #thehomecookskitchen for a chance to have your photo featured!
