When it comes to making cocktails, I always discover that I have a vital ingredient missing.
I have no triple sec, or angostura bitters, no grenadine or dry vermouth.
If I want to get serious about my drinks, I will have to invest in some of these :-)
For now though, I am happy to throw a few things together.
This melon margarita was quick and easy to make
and just perfect for a hot, summers day.
1/2 cantaloupe melon, de-seeded and peeled.
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsps sugar
3oz tequila (about 6 tbsps) You can add more, or less to your taste.
8 ice cubes
Blitz everything together in a blender.
This made enough to fill that little glass jug that you can see above - about 500ml.
