Homemade Watermelon Margaritas

Watermelon is one of my favorite things about summer. I always associate watermelon with summer, especially with the 4th of July. We have some friends coming to stay with us for the 4th, so I was searching for some fun drinks to make. . and I happened to find a delicious-looking recipe for Frozen Watermelon Margaritas! Here it is (courtesy of the Food Network):

2 1/2 cups seedless (or seeded) watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes, rind discarded before measuring
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime
4 ounces tequila
2 ounces orange flavored liqueur
1 1/2 cups ice
Lime wheel or watermelon wedge, for garnish

Put cut watermelon in a plastic bag and place in freezer for a minimum of 2 hours. (If time does not permit this step, add a few extra ice cubes when blending, the difference is not that significant.)
Stuff all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. Garnish rim of glass with a lime wheel or a watermelon wedge and serve immediately.
I haven't made these yet, but they look yummy and easy to make.
