Watermelon Margaritas

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a refreshing, fruity cocktail that’s not too sweet? These watermelon margaritas are the perfect summer (or anytime) sip.

Makes 1 cocktail.

2 oz silver tequila
2 oz watermelon juice (see recipe below)
0.5 oz triple sec
0.75 oz simple syrup
0.75 oz lime juice

Place everything into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. 

Shake it up!

Strain into a salt-rimmed glass filled with ice. 

Enjoy!

Make Watermelon Juice: 

Place 3-4 cups of diced watermelon in a blender and purée until smooth. 

Strain the pureed watermelon through a fine mesh sieve, reserving the juice.

Repeat until you have all the watermelon juice you want!

Chill until ready to use.

Note: Watermelon juice will separate if not used within a couple hours. This does NOT impact its taste and does NOT mean it’s gone bad. Simply stir or shake the juice to mix it back up. 

Tips on Watermelon Margaritas

  • Watermelon juice will keep for up to 4 days, so try to make only as much as you’ll use in that time.
  • An entire “personal” sized watermelon will make aprox 64 oz of juice.
  • You can salt or sugar the rim of your glass for this margarita, depending on preference. Run a small piece of watermelon around the top of the glass and then dip the glass into a shallow dish of salt (or sugar).
  • Do not buy bottled watermelon juice in the store without checking the label. Several have additional fruit juices mixed into them that will greatly alter the taste of this drink if you use it instead of making fresh juice.
