It’s no secret that I love me a margarita! I also love me some watermelon! My most favorite fruit! Combine the two and you have this deliciously, naturally sweet Watermelon Margarita Recipe that will be a hit at your next picnic, party or as in my case, a Tuesday evening sitting on the porch!
There is something about enjoying a beverage that you made. One that you mixed yourself rather than poured from a bottle. This delicious watermelon margarita recipe is just that! The perfect balance of sweet and refreshing! It’s perfect for summertime!
I started off by cubing up about 2.5 cups of seedless watermelon. It was sweet and delicious and juicy!
I added it to my Blendtec and blended it on the juice setting!
Strain the mixture just to make sure any of those seeds (I know, seeds in seedless watermelons!) don’t get through if they didn’t get blended up.
2.5 Cups of cubed watermelon will yield 2 cups of watermelon juice
Next in a shaker with ice add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and watermelon juice and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty! Note: If your watermelon is not that sweet you may add 1/2 ounce of simple syrup to help sweeten it up. Mine didn’t need it!
Pour over ice. Garnish with some mint and blueberries and a watermelon slice! You may also choose to rim the glasses with sugar!
There you have a refreshing and delicious summer drink that is perfect for backyard patio parties, sitting under the pergola or perfect for playing backyard games!
I have a thing for watermelons so I invite you to check out my other watermelon recipes as well! There is something about that pink and green that makes me happy!
