Tipsy Tequila Yellow Watermelon Wedges – Celebrate the waning days of summer with this boozy, crunchy, kicked-up appetizer featuring seasonal produce and a festive spirit!
Labor Day is this weekend, which means there’s one last chance to get some summer partying in! I know exactly what I want to end the summer season with, and it’s these Tipsy Tequila Yellow Watermelon Wedges. Sadly, I work the long weekend… But fortunately for me I’m off Tuesday, so after a long holiday weekend of work I can enjoy a couple of extra slices of this tipsy watermelon! As a registered nurse, I dare say that I may be needing it… All you nurses out there, you SO know what I mean!
Now on to the recipe! This recipe has tequila, triple sec, lime, and salt – the classic combination that makes up a margarita. I soak watermelon in the above mixture, along with agave, which adds a sweetness to the combo. Finally, the addition of jalapeño gives this recipe a kick! It’s like a fresh, crunchy, kicking margarita that you can chew on! Oh, and I’m pretty sure it’s healthy because you’re eating fruit. Right? 😉
I hope you have a happy Labor Day and a great end to the summer season. The end of summer is always a little sad for this locavore and foodie… Fortunately, pumpkin spice season is right around the corner!
