One of my all time favorite cookbooks is The Junior League of Little Rock’s cookbook Big Taste of Little Rock. The cookbook was named Best Fundraising Cookbook in United States by Gourmand International at the Paris Cookbook Fair of 2009.
If you want a refreshing cocktail for summer, try the Watermelon Margarita.
4 cups seedless watermelon
¾ cup tequila
½ cup triple sec
⅓ cup sugar
⅓ cup fresh lime juice
2 cups ice
Freeze watermelon until firm. Combine frozen watermelon with tequila, triple sec, sugar, lime juice in a blender. Process until smooth. Add the ice in batches, processing to the desired consistency. Serve immediately.
