Watermelon Margarita Salad

This is an updated version of the old "bottle of vodka in a watermelon". We twist the tasty treat with the flavors of a Margarita; Tequilla, Lime and Salt.

1 Large Oblong Watermelon that sits as flat as possible
1/2 cup Tequila (Use something a step above the well if you know what I mean)
1 Tbs Kosher Salt
1 Lime

Here comes the challenge...You need the longest serrated knife you own. If you fancy yourself artistic you can cut the watermelon into a myriad of shapes. Most commenly, people do Baskets. I am not that good with my knife (which is why the picture is not of the finished product, but heck it tasted good.)

So, cut the watermelon into some semblance of a 1/2 bowl shape. Using a melon baller, scoop out all of the watermelon and reserve in a bowl. Put empty watermelon bowl in the freezer. Add Tequila to watermelon balls and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.

Remove bowl from freezer, add watermelon balls, salt and fresh squeezed lime.

Hard to tell how many this serves as usually one or two people just fall in love and eat it all (and sometimes drink the juice out of the bottom)!
