Tips on Watermelon Margaritas
Either one! 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).
To make a watermelon mock-rita, leave out the tequila and swap fresh squeezed orange juice for the triple sec. Shake everything up, then top with 1-2 oz club soda.
Feel free to substitute the triple sec for a different orange liqueur like Cointreau or Grand Marnier. If you're looking to reduce the alcohol content, you can even swap it for fresh squeezed orange juice.
Pick your favorite, but be sure it's the silver (clear) kind. I love and use José Cuervo.
