This sounds a little strange, I know, because I can get lemons & limes in the dead of winter at my local foodville. But I like it ice-cold, and usually the last thing I want to drink in the winter is ice-cold anything. My sweet tea I normally drink sans ice & only slightly chilled. Of course, all this goes out the window if a hot flash makes an unwelcome appearance. Then I want all the ice I can get, even if it is 20 degrees out.
I digress. You really don't want to hear about hot flashes, do you. That was a rhetorical question, you know.
Daggum it. It's a seedless watermelon. Now what do I do?
Oooh, I know.
First I scooped all the red, luscious sweetness (uh . . . no) into my blender. I had to do this in 4 batches - 2 for each half.
And, I know what you're thinking. Yes, there were a few seeds in there, but not enough for any kind of decent spitting.
Then I poured it through a strainer to keep out the seed bits.
Press on the pulp to get as much juice out as possible, and you are left with this:
Wait. Something is missing.
Ah, I know what it is.
I poured the juice into my ice cube trays and froze them,
until I had this -
Now, I am definitely seeing some tequila possibilities for those cubes. Ya think?
