Tips on Watermelon Margaritas
You can substitute Grand Marnier, Cointreau or any other orange flavored liqueur for the triple sec if you prefer. Triple sec is lower in price, delicious, and easy to find, which is why I list it in the recipe.
Use fresh orange juice instead of the triple sec and swap the tequila for club soda!
Fresh juice is best, especially when there's only five ingredients in the cocktail. But if all you have is bottled juice, that'll work fine.
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).
