Piel De Sapo Melons

It's getting hot here!! Hope this helps all of us :)

Melon Margarita

1.5 cup melon puree (see below) Best are Piel de Sapo melon, honeydew or watermelon.
1/2 cup tequila
3 tbsp orange liqueur (I used triple sec)
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tbsp sugar syrup or just sugar to taste
Coarse salt for the glass rim

To make the melon puree, remove the skin and seeds of a fresh melon and cut into large chunks. Place in a blender and process until smooth.
Wet the rim of the margarita glass with a piece of lime and dip in coarse salt in a shallow dish to coat the edge of the glass.
Combine all the ingredients along with ice in a cocktail shaker or blender and mix well.
Strain into the prepared Margarita glass, garnish with a lime wedge.


Piel De Sapo Melon:
The shiney, green, blotched skin fits the literal translation of its name perfectly — "toad skin." But whats in a name. Their flesh is pale green to white and it is very tender, juicy and sweet. Super gourmet melon.
The fruits are oblong, eight to twelve inches long and average about eight pounds, with a shelf life of several months. Relatively rare, the variety originated in La Mancha, Spain.
