- 12 cups Cubed Watermelon (med sized watermelon)
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1/2 Bottle of Mellow Blush
- 1/4 cup Lime Juice
- 1 1/2 cups Tequila (optional)
Cut watermelon into cubes. Set 6 cups aside for the simple syrups and 6 cups aside for the watermelon juice.
FOR SIMPLE SYRUP: Combine 6 cups of watermelon and 1 cup of sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Use a potato masher or another utensil to mash the watermelon and sugar together, pushing out the liquid and dissolving the sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl or jar, pressing the watermelon to extract all the liquid. Set aside to cool completely. Makes just over 1 cup of simple syrup.
FOR WATERMELON JUICE: Combine the other 6 cups of watermelon and wine in a blender. Blend until smooth, pour through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl or jar.
COMBINE the tequila, 1.5 cups of the watermelon juice, lime juice, and 1/4 simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until thoroughly chilled, about 30 seconds, and pour into glasses rimmed with lime juice and coarse salt. Garnish with lime wedges and serve immediately.
