Margarita mad in Mexico

Margarita mad in Mexico

11:30 AEST Thu Aug 5 2010
When Kelly went to Mexico, she and the crew relaxed at the end of a hard day's filming with a watermelon margarita at Cancun Palace. They are all still raving about the taste, and while not officially a food, their margarita did contain lime and watermelon so scraped into Getaway's Food Special.

Watermelon margarita

Moisten rim of margarita glass and dip in sugar.Blend seeded watermelon until you have 500ml. Add 200ml of Tequila and 100ml of Triple Sec. Add sugar if not sweet enough for your liking. Whiz it all together, pop in some ice and serve with a lime wedge.

Traditional margarita

Wet rim of glass with lime and dip in salt. Fill cocktail shaker 2/3 full of ice, add 45ml Tequila, 30ml Cointreau and 45ml fresh lime juice. Shake like crazy and strain into glass.

Cancun Palace

We've already told you about Cancun Palace, but in case you missed it, it's quite the place for holiday-makers.

As with most resorts in the hotel zone, Cancun Palace is all-inclusive. That includes meals and drinks at its five restaurants, mini bar and selected day trips.

The 12-storey building faces the Caribbean Sea on one side and the gentle Nichupté Lagoon on the other. Recently renovated, it offers beachfront luxury, endless spa services and entertainment every night. It has 601 guestrooms, each with a balcony and oversized Jacuzzi.

There's a spa, tennis court and fitness centre and pools to choose from if you don't fancy sand between your toes.

Given that the watermelon margarita is approaching 1 liter it better be a mighty big margarita glass - not surprising that the crew liked it either at a hefty 10 shots worth of booze....
