Margaritas are one of my all-time favorite cocktails. I whip up a watermelon version in the summer that’s a total hit in the Bauer house (I cannot make them fast enough!). You can also skip the alcohol for a yummy lycopene-rich mocktail.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 margaritas
  • 2 cups diced watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 6 to 8 watermelon “ice cubes” (cut watermelon into small cubes and freeze)

Puree watermelon in blender for about 30 seconds, or until it becomes watermelon juice.

Add watermelon juice to a cocktail shaker with lime juice, tequila, and a few ice cubes. Shake well to combine everything. Then, discard ice cubes and pour watermelon margarita into 2 glasses containing 3 to 4 watermelon “ice cubes.”

Garnish with optional watermelon slices on rim and enjoy.

Makes 2 servings (about 1 to 1½ cups each).
