Start the season right with this melon-lime delight, and invite your friends to toast the brightest holiday of the year.

11 oz limeade
3 oz melon liqueur
1 oz gold tequila

To a pitcher, add 11 oz limeade and 3 oz melon liqueur. Stir to mix. Pour into a 14-cube tray (approximately 3/4 oz to 1 oz per cube). Freeze for at least 2 hours, or overnight. To a blender, add 1 oz gold tequila and 7 cubes. Blend until slushy (about 10 seconds). Pour into a margarita glass rimmed with sea salt and garnish with a honeydew melon slice or lime, if desired.
