Every now and then, I love to drink and serve a really great cocktail. Fresh in-season fruits are a must and using them makes me pretend the drink is healthy – well yes, it’s kinda if you don’t overdo the intake. Fruity cocktails are great in the summertime. This recipe is easy to make so it’s a nice idea for when you are having a crowd over for a backyard grill-out; make a large pitcher earlier in the day. Because this watermelon margarita is so smooth and refreshing, you will be tempted to drink it fast; watch out as it is sneaky.
Buy a seedless watermelon. Make this cocktail. Serve it up and Enjoy!

Refreshing Watermelon Margarita
- 4 cups seedless watermelon cut in chunks plus extra chunks for garnish
- 3 medium limes - juiced
- 1/2 cup Cointreau
- 1-1/2 cups Patron Silver
- 1 pinch sea salt
In a blender, puree the watermelon chunks
Pour the watermelon puree into your favorite pitcher
Add the lime juice, Cointreau, Patron, and salt. Stir with a spoon.
Pour into your favorite cocktail glasses over ice and serve. Garnish with lime slices and/or watermelon chunks or slices.
I choose not to strain the watermelon puree. I think it gives the margarita a richer taste. You can certainly opt to strain the drink before serving, You can also choose to make a frozen margarita by adding all the ingredients into the blender along with ice.
