Upon adopting a Paleo diet for my CrossFit challenge, I learned the only "legal" alcohols were red wine and 100% agave tequila.
This weekend, I picked up a bottle of tequila with the idea for this cocktail in mind. It is not low in calories by any means and should be considered a Paleo friendly treat, drank in moderation. (Sorry, I don't practice what I preach!)
makes 1 pitcher
6 cups watermelon chunks
4 large limes, juiced
1 tbsp agave
1/2 bottle of 100% agave tequila
Place half of the watermelon chunks in blender and blend. Pour the juice in a pitcher. Do the same with the remaining watermelon and pour in the same pitcher. Add lime juice, tequila, and agave to the pitcher. Stir, pour, and let the fun begin!
I made 2 pitchers, which was too much since my sister was on call, my mom and bestie are light weights, and I didn't want to be a lush alone. The second pitcher was barely touched, so I poured it in a plastic container and froze it. I can't wait for the weekend so I can take that slushy goodness out of the freezer and slurp it up!
I might start a regular little cocktail installment on the blog, including drinks with only the freshest ingredients. What do you think? Would you be interested in ideas for refreshing, healthier drinks?
