We're getting excited for our Dirty Dancing viewing party this weekend, where we’ll be watching the 80s classic Dirty Dancing staring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. I was assigned the laborious task of carrying the watermelon, AND creating the signature cocktail for the evening, but I persevered, and came up with the Kellerman Kooler, aka the Dirty Watermelon Margarita, which is guaranteed to get everyone loosened up for the dance party!
- 1 cup of seeded watermelon, cut into chunks
- 1.5 oz of white tequila
- 1 oz of Aperol or Cointreu
- juice of one lime
- teaspoon of simple syrup or agave
- cup of ice
- fresh mint for garnish
- salt for rim (use a salt/pepper mix to make it extra Dirty)
Blend all ingredients in a blender.
Prepare salted glass rim by rubbing the lime rind around the rim and placing glass rim on a plate of salt.
Pour into salted glasses, garnish with fresh mint
