This cocktail might just be "Summer" all wrapped up in frosty treat.  I've garnished this one with a slice of an heirloom tomato for the Tomato Tasting Dinner Party, but you can go for the traditional salt and lime for any kind of party.

frozen
Watermelon Margarita

makes 6 generous margaritas

1 seedless watermelon, approx. 6 cups
1 cup of tequila
1/4 cup of orange liquer
3 limes- 2 juiced, 1 sliced
sea salt

Cut watermelon into cubes, removing any black seeds.  Spread the cubes on a baking sheet and freeze for at least 2 hours.

Place the frozen watermelon cubes in the blender with 1 cup of tequila, orange liquer and lime juice.  Blend until smooth.  You may need to blend it in smaller batches, depending on the size of your blender. 

Serve with a salted rim and a slice of lime.
