What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • Watermelon – Light, sweet, and juicy, watermelon pairs perfectly with the stronger flavor of the tequila.
  • Tequila – Made from the blue agave plant, tequila is a must-have for a margarita.
  • Lime juice – Just a hint of lime juice is all you’ll need to enhance the flavor of the tequila without overwhelming the watermelon. (Wondering how much juice is in your lime?)

How To Make Watermelon Margaritas

The full recipe & ingredients list are below, but here you’ll find a quick overview for making this recipe perfectly, along with useful tips and info!

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour into salt- or sugar-rimmed glasses and garnish with a lime wedge.
  3. Serve immediately.

Chef’s Tips

  • We used frozen watermelon cubes for our margaritas to make them perfectly slushy and chilled. If you don’t have time to freeze your watermelon, serve your margaritas over ice.
  • This recipe makes either 4 small margaritas or 2 large ones (or 1 really jumbo one).
  • To rim your glass, make a small cut down the middle of a lime wedge. Stick this cut right on the edge of your glass, and rub the lime all the way around. Dip the lime-covered edge into a shallow bowl or dish filled with coarse salt or granulated sugar.

Why Watermelon Is So Good For You

Eating (or drinking) watermelon has a ton of health benefits, so feel free to tell people you’re drinking this cocktail for your health!

  • It helps you stay hydrated. Due to watermelon’s high water content (92% water!), watermelon is a delicious way to stay hydrated. Plus, eating watermelon can help you feel full.
  • Full of antioxidants. Watermelon has vitamin C, lycopene, and other nutrients that have antioxidant properties that can help the body fight off free radicals.
  • It may be good for heart health. Lycopene also helps lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure. It can also help keep your arteries healthy. Citrulline in watermelons can also lower blood pressure.
  • Great for skin and hair. The vitamins in watermelon help the body create collagen for healthy skin and hair, as well as helping create and repair skin cells.
  • It can also help with inflammation, keep your eyes healthy, help with brain health, and keep muscles from getting sore.
