Kick-off summer season with a cool twist on a classic drink - Watermelon margarita has all the summer flavors you need to quench your thirst!
This refreshing watermelon margarita has a fantastic sweet & tangy flavor combo and it's perfect for hot days.
I'm probably one of the biggest fans of classic margaritas, but it's fun to give it a twist every now and then.
I fell in love already long time ago with this amazing mango margarita, no wonder I'm having a big crush on this watermelon summer version right now.
Sweet and refreshing, it goes down easily in a sip or two and makes you crave more (but drink responsibly, you do not want to have a margarita too many).
As delicious as it sounds, this cocktail is impressively easy to make.
Blend the watermelon pulp, mix it up with lime juice, tequila and triple sec, add a little sugar and you're good to go.
I use ripe watermelon which is sweeter and allows you to cut the sugar out.
You can also make a virgin margarita version, perfect for kids or grown-ups that don't drink alcohol.
Simply substitute tequila & triple sec with lemon/lime soda or homemade lemonade.
You can even make a big batch ahead and refrigerate until ready to serve, but I usually drink it straight up as soon as it's ready.
This watermelon margarita is the perfect summer cocktail for any occasion.
Make a large pitcher to share with all your friends at the next bbq's, 4th of July celebrations, outdoor parties and even picnics!
