Simply refreshing Watermelon Margaritas will be your go to way to cool down this summer! And you only need 3 ingredients to make them!
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, you could say that I am kind of a baby when it comes to heat. I mean, anything above 85 and I’m uncomfortable.
I know, I know, it’s crazy.
This means that come summer time, I am always looking for refreshing ways to cool down. And with cinco de mayo next week and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start getting summer cocktail recipes ready.
And these watermelon margaritas are a great way to start!
To make watermelon margaritas, you’re going to need watermelon juice. All you need to do to make it is blend up cubed watermelon with some ice and voila, watermelon juice.
I actually saw some at the grocery store the other day that you can buy too. But I mean, with all the fresh watermelons hitting the shelves and the fact that it is SO easy to make. Save your money!
This watermelon margarita could not be easier to make. You simply need watermelon, lime juice and silver tequila.
After you blend the watermelon, simply stir it together with the lime juice and silver tequila.
I find the watermelon pretty sweet on it’s own so I forgo the use of simple syrup or sugar. If you like things a bit sweeter add a splash of simple syrup.
Finally, you can choose to strain the margaritas if you prefer. I like the added watermelon flavor you get from leaving the pulp in there.
Like a classic margarita, this margarita is garnished with a salt rim and a lime. You could also garnish it with sugar.
Yes! Simply combine all the ingredients for the margarita with ice, blend and you’re good to go!
