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.
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 summer 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!

Oh my goodness, I am pinning this one! Margaritas are my favorite, and I have watermelons growing in my yard - what a tasty combination!

Thank you Michelle, so glad you like it! You are sooo lucky to grow your own watermelons, I wish I could do the same considering I eat tons of it on summer season 😀
