1 tablespoon Sugar or 2 tsp Organic Blue Agave Syrup
1/2 cup Tequila
2 tablespoons Orange Liqueur
4 cups Orange Watermelon cubed, frozen
1/4 cup Coarse Salt
Lime wedges to garnish each glass


Remove rind from whole watermelon and cut into 1-inch cubes.

Set on plastic film lined cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze until solid (about 1 hour).

In blender, combine lime juice, sugar, tequila and orange liqueur.

Add watermelon chunks a few at a time, blending into a thick, smooth slush.

If desired, pour salt onto a small plate.

Rub glass rims with a lime wedge to moisten.

Dip rims in salt to coat.

Pour margarita mixture into glasses; garnish with lime wedges.
