Watermelon Plata Tequila Cocktail

Watermelon Plata Tequila Cocktail
Serves 4
When watermelon is in abundance, this is a great way to use it. Bobby Flay purees seedless watermelon chunks, then strains the juice through a sieve and mixes it with silver tequila, sugar syrup, blueberries, mint and fresh lime juice.
