My watermelon margarita is FRESH and refreshing. Made with homemade watermelon juice, fresh lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and simple sugar, it’s literally summer in a glass.



Watermelon juice

  • 1 packed cup of chopped seedless watermelon, fully blended until liquid (makes about 6 ounces)

Watermelon margarita

  • 2.5 ounces watermelon juice
  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 3/4 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec


  1. For the salted rim, take a lime wedge and coat the rim of a margarita glass or double old fashioned glass. Dip in margarita salt, rotating until coated.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigorously and pour straight into a chilled glass with the (now crushed) ice from the shaker. Garnish with a watermelon wedge.


You can make this spicy by adding jalapeno slices or a dash of tabasco. One of my fav touches.
