Watermelon gives the Silver Coin Margarita, from Austin's Fonda San Miguel, its refreshing kick.
For the Watermelon-Infused Tequila
- 1 medium-size seedless watermelon
- 1 (750-ml) bottle of silver tequila
For the Margarita
- 4 oz. watermelon-infused tequila
- 2 oz. frozen limeade
- 2 cubes of the infused watermelon
- 1 1⁄2 oz. Cointreau
- Watermelon wedges
For the infused tequila, cut a watermelon into 1" cubes (rind removed) until you have roughly 2 lbs. of fruit. Transfer to a glass jar, pour in tequila, seal jar, and let steep for 2 days.
To make drinks, combine the watermelon-infused tequila, 2 cups crushed ice, frozen limeade, infused watermelon, and Cointreau in a blender. Purée until slushy. Garnish with watermelon wedges.
