Watermelon Margaritas


  • 2 shots of silver tequila
  • 1/2 shot of freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 shot of triple sec
  • 1 1/2 shots watermelon puree
  • Ice
  • Coarse sea salt, for rim
  • Wedge of watermelon and lime, for garnish


  1. Slice up part of your watermelon, remove the rind, and add a couple of slices to a blender. I used two large slices of watermelon, and it yielded about two cups of watermelon puree.
  2. Add ice to your cocktail shaker. Add tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and watermelon puree to your shaker and shake vigorously.
  3. Salt the rim of your glass by running a lime wedge around the entire rim and then dipping the moistening lip of the glass into a shallow dish of sea salt.
  4. Add a couple of ice cubes to your salted rim glass, and pour the margarita from the shaker into the glass.
  5. Garnish with a slice of watermelon and a lime wedge.
  6. If you want to prepare these as blended margaritas, forgo the shaker and put all of the ingredients into a blender and process on high. I would use approximately 10 ice cubes in the blended version. Serve in a salted glass.
  7. Enjoy!
