Try a new twist on a classic margarita with watermelon and mint flavors.
Combine sugar, salt, 6 torn fresh mint sprigs, and 8 thin lime wedges in a medium bowl; stir to combine. Let stand 10 minutes. Pour boiling water over mint mixture, stirring until sugar dissolves; let stand 10 minutes. Strain mint mixture into a bowl, pressing on solids. Discard solids. Combine liquid, watermelon, tequila, and lime juice in a blender; process until smooth. Divide mixture among 8 ice-filled glasses; garnish with 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves and 8 thin lime wedges.
A pitcher of Watermelon Mojitos has become our house drink for company at our mountain home this summer. The technique of making a lime mint syrup is fantastic.
